Our usual running times are from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. although non steam traction may be available before 11 a.m.
The railway is situated at the back of the Garden Centre at 392 Christchurch Road, West Parley, Ferndown, near Bournemouth Dorset BH22 8SW (see map below) about a mile from Bournemouth Airport.
We will try and adhere to the dates mentioned above but they may change without notice due to unforeseen circumstances and no responsibility can be accepted if this happens
Mr Plowman has recently retired from running the Garden Centre but having said that the business is stll open under the old name and under vigorous NEW management - click here for a link to the Garden Centre's new website. The Railway is becoming well known as a Visitor attraction (especially among the children and the young at heart and all who appreciate the nostalgia of a train ride behind a steam engine) in the local areas of West Parley, Ferndown, Ringwood, Bournemouth, Poole and Wimborne.
The current fare for a ride is £1.50 per person regardless of age and the journey consists of four slightly different circuits around the field at the back - a total journey trip of approximately a mile which takes about fifteen minutes
