Home To Nottinghamshire’s Only Narrow Gauge Steam Railway



Rediscover the charm of  shining brass and the smell of steam with our stable of small but perfectly formed steam locomotives and hear the whistle blow when you ride in our historical coaching stock.

We are sorry to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances, the Sherwood Forest Railway will not be running it's popular Santa Specials this year.

 We would like to take this opportunity to apologise to the many people who have supported us over the past eight years and hopefully things will resume as normal next Christmas. m

Welcome to the Sherwood Forest Railway, home of Nottinghamshire’s only narrow gauge steam railway, nestled in a valley in between Mansfield and the historic village of Edwinstowe.

A 5/8th scale, 15” gauge railway running through cuttings, over level crossings and across traditional farm land, our railway is run to the Narrow Gauge Railway principles where the little locos were used to build the foundations of roads, larger railways and water navigations of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
