Welcome to the Stapleford Miniature Railway

The 10 ¼” SMR is based in Stapleford Park near Melton Mowbray

Maintained and operated by the “Friends of the Stapleford Miniature Railway”


Loros Hospice Care

With nearly 2 mile of scenic track, the one fifth scale SMR is home to the East African 31 class 2-8-4 oil burning loco, superb scale British LMS Jubilee, GWR Saint, the mighty NYC Niagara and NKP Berkshire American locos as well as the Curwen Warship Diesel and Curwen Atlantic.

The railway opens twice per year to the public, the second weekend in June and the three day August bank holiday.

Upcoming Events

The railway normally opens twice per year to the public, 2nd weekend in June and 3 day August Bank Holiday.

However sadly due to Covid-19 virus, along with all other gatherings we have cancelled all our 2020 events.  The railway will be on a very limited care and maintenance package to avoid social contact between members with much work from home in own workshops etc although we have on site security presence.  As soon as we get the clearance from government to resume work we will be back and will advise when we can open to the public again.

In the mean time can we please urge all our friends and supporters to follow government guidelines and ensure we can all return to normal routines in the shortest possible time.
