Mid Suffolk Light Railway
The Mid Suffolk Light railway or the ‘Middy’ as the line was affectionately known, is Suffolk’s only standard gauge heritage preserved railway. You can enjoy steam train rides in genuine Great Eastern railway 4-wheel coaches hauled by one of our resident steam locomotives and take in the atmosphere of how a rural railway served its community up to 100 years ago
At Brockford Station, on a section of the original track bed, the style of the MSLR has been recreated including original buildings, passenger and goods vehicles, displays and exhibitions. On site facilities include the Railway Museum, cafe, souvenir shop, and real ale bar – The Kitchener Arms.
We are currently extending our railway to more than double its length and restoring our own locomotive, Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0ST no. 1604.
In 2012 we were winners of the Heritage Railway Association’s interpretation award and in 2015 we were Suffolk Museum of the year. We are an accredited museum.
