There & Back Light Railway was founded by my wife, Naomi and I in August 2019. We had the steam engine, and we thought that there was a gap in the market for this type of attraction in our region. We all remember when we were little having rides behind little steam engines at fetes, but these railways were often operated by model engineering clubs which in recent years have seen declining numbers and ageing members. This has led to the portable tracks they used falling into disuse and this type of attraction disappear from the public eye.
With this in mind, our railway was born. In the modern age of social media and technology this allows people young and not so young to experience the joys of a little steam engine once again. For some this may even be their first experience of steam! Because we are looking at this from a commercial perspective, we have approached this differently from the clubs of old, we have a strong brand, online presence and marketing. We have built relationships with complementary organizations and industries; we feel this is a steam railway with a truly modern outlook.
Our Railway is 200 feet long and requires a space about 8 feet wide. All we require is a level ground and a supply of water. If this is something you would be interested in please do not hesitate to get in touch, have a look at our website or social media for an idea what we are about and see what we can do for you!
