Coming soon...


An exciting community based project aimed at encouraging young and old alike into engineering, mainly associated with miniature steam engines.

This website explains what will go on in The Branch Line once it is opened to the public. First, we must raise the funds and then build and equip the Learning Centre. Hence, we need your help.

See Activities to find out how we intend to make The Branch Line a place of continuing and evolving interest, always something new to see when you Visit.

Something different from social media.
