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

It is with great sadness we have to announce the CANCELLATION of our planned July 3rd/4th Open weekend due to advice from Local Authorities regarding increasing Covid 19 cases in and around the locality.

We still plan to go ahead with our Annual 3 day event over August Bank Holiday and are able to still take bookings for private hire so if you wish to have the railway to yourselves please contact us on info@fsmr.co.uk and we shall help you have your steam fix.
