Departing from Exbury Central Station, the train meanders through the Summer Lane Garden (not accessible by foot) before skirting past the Rock Garden, travelling through the tunnel and then stopping off at Exbury North to refuel. The return journey includes a circle of Dragonfly Pond, where passengers can watch out for wildlife, before heading back to Exbury Central.
After their journey, passengers are encourages to explore the engine shed where graphics, videos and memorabilia line the walls, recalling steam's heyday and the construction of Exbury's railway.
Our steam railway has two carriages adapted to accomodate wheelchair users and their families. These are larger than normal carriages and have a ramp to assist in getting on and off the train.
