Colne Valley Railway

Situated in the countryside on the Essex/Suffolk border, this pretty line in situated on a one mile stretch of the old Colne Valley &  Halstead Railway with the station and other attractions being situated at the mid-way point.  Run entirely by volunteers and saved from closure in 2016, we have operational steam and diesel engines on certain days and a large collection of carriages and wagons including a Travelling Post Office.

New for 2019- entrance, car park, shop and Brewster Interpretation Centre. There is a miniature ride-on railway, a garden railway layout and a model shed containing a large '00' gauge layout.  One of the station buildings was originally sited 1.5 miles away and was moved and rebuilt brick by brick.  You are welcome to visit a working signal box and look round the exhibition centre.  During May-September the woodland walk is open - the area attracts all sorts of wildlife and if you are lucky you may see kingfishers.  We have a well-stocked shop and excellent buffet car which can provide you with home-cooked fare ranging from hot meals to cream teas.

Disabled access:  We have ramp access to all trains, and disabled toilet facilities.  the signal box and buffet are not wheelchair accessible (the buffet is a railway carriage with narrow doors and 2 small steps) there is an outdoor patio area.
