Scotland's oldest miniature railway ran its first train at Arbroath in 1935. Since then, nearly two million people have enjoyed a ride along the quarter mile track on the seafront. Indeed many of the parents and grandparents bringing their children along for their first ride on the wee railway, reminisce of the day their parents had brought them along as toddlers.

Not that the railway is only for children! With six miniature locomotives (including two fully operational steamers), miniature buses and a fire engine, there is always lots to see and many an adult is just as keen as the wains to have a 'hurl' along the line. The railway is currently run on a non-profit making basis by Jill Kerr and a band of enthusiastic helpers.

So why not come along and give it a try. An entertainment that has been around for 75 years has got to be worth a visit!
