Leighton Buzzard Railway Museum
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The LBRM is one of the most popular narrow-gauge railways in the country, and the top visitor attraction in Leighton Buzzard. The line was first built in 1919 to carry sand, but since 1968 has operated steam-driven round-trip passenger services between Pages Parks and Stonehenge Works, a journey of just over an hour. The trains reach a top speed of 5.5 mph on their journey through the outskirts of town and into open countryside.
The railway also maintains the largest collection of narrow-guage locomotives in Britain.
