The oldest working railway in the world, established by Act of Parliament in 1758. This former colliery line, just over a mile from the city centre is now a Heritage Railway running passenger trains. It was the first standard gauge line to be run by volunteers in 1960. It is also an Accredited Museum housing a collection of Leeds built railway locomotives and telling the story of not just the colliery railway but also the Leeds Locomotive Industry.

With just over a mile of track between Moor Road and Park Halt station, on the northern edge of Middleton Park, it is ideal not just for rail enthusiasts but also families with children.
Special Events take place throughout the operating season culminating in the Santa Steam Specials in December.

The Railway has a dedicated “Education Team” who liaise with schools to develop bespoke visits with many topics that a live railway can cover. These visits are in addition to our normal operating days and are by prior booking only. The general public are excluded from the site on school days.

Trains run every Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday as well as on Wednesdays in​ school holidays
