Barnards Farm Miniature Railway
West Hordon Brentwood CM13 3LX
Barnards Farm Miniature Railway - A new miniature railway opened in 2010, this railway has the potential to be one of the best in the UK.
Barnards Miniature Railway was officially opened on Sunday 5th September 2010 when the first 260m of running track was completed. Since then the volunteers have been working hard to extend the line and to date (March 2013) the line runs via a loop track taking you from the car park to Belvedere Station and back which is over 1.4Km.
During 2013 more work will be taking place to again extend the line, this time to a new station to be Sitooterie Halt. This will be located next to the Sitooterie sculpture which is on the edge of a lake. The main Station at the car park Burton Shaw will also be relocated in late 2013 to a more sheltered position where station buildings will be added to complete the railway look. Burton Shaw will be a 2 platform station with 3 tracks. The middle track being the engine release road which will allow our steam and diesel engines to run round their trains via the turntable which will be located at the East end of the Station.
The line is 7¼ inch gauge and the engine sheds, carriage sheds and two bridges over the Mardyke River have already been constructed. After being extended to the Sitooterie the line will again be extended to two more stations in due course. Locos are powered by Steam, Diesel/Hydraulic, Petrol and Electric.
The gauge is 7&;;frac14; inch..
The railway is 1.5 miles in length.
A scenic line with a number of stations. The route passes the Sitooterie sculpture which is on the edge of a lake. It also includes two bridges over the Mardyke River
