Brookside Miniature Railway - Brookside Miniature Railway runs in the grounds of the garden centre.

Brookside Miniature Railway is a time established miniature railway and is well known throughout the United Kingdom. The railway is situated in Brookside Garden Centre, Poynton, near Stockport and Macclesfield.

Originally as a 5 inch gauge “there and back”, it progressed by stepping up a gauge to 7 1/4 inch. It has a stable of 5 steam locomotives and 3 internal combustion locomotives.

In 1972, the railway was laid at Brookside Garden Centre. Although the railway was only a simple out and back, it ran almost every weekend and proved as a popular attraction. The locomotives at this time were 0-6-0T Simplex and 0-6-0T Speedy, both of which are now on display in the railway museum.

Over the years, the railway has been upgraded, most recently in 2007 when a new extension included 2 bridges and a small station halt Bridge of Orchy.

There is a large space in the middle for the Country Fairground run by the Keeling Family on certain weekends.
