About: What is the Branch Line?


  • The Branch Line will be a new and exciting Learning Centre in Beech Hurst Gardens, Haywards Heath, that will be of interest to people of all ages.

  • If you, your family and friends are fascinated by railways, and enjoy playing with moving models and toys, you will be interested in The Branch Line.

  • There will be active and passive displays in an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment. Our aim is to teach the technology and engineering involved with a miniature railway, especially steam locomotives.

  • As a facility run by volunteers, there will always be opportunities for people over 18 years of age to be volunteers and help run the Learning Centre, making it an exciting community based project. To express an interest in becoming a Branch Line Volunteer go to Contact Us.
