Dear members, supporters, volunteers, customers and friends

It is with great regret and disappointment that we have decided, in light of Government advice and Guidelines with regard to the Coronavirus pandemic, that the Railway will remain closed to the public until further notice. All events will be postponed, with the hope that they will be rearranged later in the year, when we are out of the current crisis.

Please check our web site for any updates.


The railway is open for train rides from Easter till October. Trains run on the the first Sunday of each month, and on Bank Holiday weekends we also run the trains on the Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday. Trains run 2.00pm - 5.30pm.

We are located in the villiage of Thames Ditton in Surrey and our miniature railway is known as the Thames Ditton Miniature Railway. The ground level railway is for the large scale trains. The elevated railway is for the smaller scale trains. We have been running passenger trains on the miniature railway for for over 70 years on our current site. We hope you will be able to visit us during the year and have a ride on our trains and enjoy the atmosphere of our railway and it's trains.

Volunteering / Membership

What we do, and why you should consider joining us.

We are a not-for-profit society and the railway is run solely by a group of dedicated volunteers all year. If you have skills that can be put to use then great, if not then don't worry there are plenty of ways to learn. We will be more than happy to teach you skills that will be with you for life. Volunteering gives a unique opportunity to work with like-minded people and make friendships that can last a lifetime.

We are always looking for more volunteers who would like to get involved. Whether you wish to be a Driver, Guard, Platform Duties, Signalman, Engineering or just help with the maintenance, you will be working alongside a friendly group of volunteers sharing the same experience.
