in Burton-upon-Trent



The Riverside Miniature Railway is operated by volunteer members of the Burton-upon-Trent Model Engineering Society and is located next to the River Trent off Meadow Road, Burton-upon-Trent. Our model engineering society was founded over 65 years ago and thanks to the efforts of dedicated members our miniature railway has been continuously developed and expanded.   Over many years our railway has been enjoyed by members and visitors, and especially by children and parents attending our regular Birthday Parties when we host children's parties with train rides behind live steam engines and diesel outline model locomotives on our attractive landscaped railway alongside the River Trent.


Our facilities include an 800ft  raised level passenger carrying track as well as a 900 ft passenger carrying ground level track.
Other facilities include a clubhouse with a meeting room, toilet, and a kitchen, two stations, motive power depots, carriage storage, and free car parking for visitors.   As well as our popular
Birthday Parties  regular 'Steam Up's' are held on weekend dates during the year when we welcome visitors, and train rides will be available subject to locomotives being available.  Up to date information on our programme can be found on our Facebook page using the link below.          For more information, reservations, and to contact our Secretary please use the email link on our
