Eastleigh Lakeside Railway opened
in 1992 and now has developed into one of the best miniature
railways in the country.
The return journey from the main station, Eastleigh Parkway, to
Monks Brook Halt is one and a quarter miles long and takes about
15 - 20 minutes. On the way it runs through a tunnel 230 feet long.
The railway fleet consists of 19 steam locos,
2 diesel hydraulic and the battery powered Jubilee. Steam locos
numbers 1001 & 1002
were built in the early 1930s and are historically important.
Open 10am to 4.30pm, every weekend throughout the year and all School Holidays.
