Paddington Bear is visiting the Leighton Buzzard Railway at Stonehenge Works – come and ride on a steam train to meet him. 

We'll be running non-stop, double-headed 7-coach trains. This means we'll not be stopping at level crossings, we will have two locos on each train instead of one and trains will be double the normal length.

This is an incredibly rare event and offers a great opportunity for photographers, as well as families. A special timetable will operate as below.

The train trip takes 90 minutes, including 50 minutes at Stonehenge Works where, as well as Paddington TM, there is the Stonehenge Trail covering static engines and wagons, including a sand train as it would have run on the railway from the 1920s to 1970s. We have a steam engine called “Penlee” where children can climb in the cab and pretend to be the engine driver. There is also a bomb train from an RAF ammunition depot, a logging train and a display about sand quarrying in Leighton Buzzard and the Great War military railways from which our line was first built. 

The craft shop sells non-railway items and also hot and cold drinks and confectionery. Our guided Engine Shed Show tour at Page’s Park tells the stories of our steam locomotives as well as the hostory of the line and its construction. The Buzzrail café will open with a full menu from 10.00. Marmalade sandwiches are however only available for our special guest!

We expect the trains to be very busy so please book online at www.buzzrail.co.uk to guarantee your seat.
