Well that's that people! Our last Day out with Thomas event is complete and it was a smashing success!

Thank you very much to everyone who came along to support us, this weekend has shown just what our little railway can achieve.  We were so very pleased to see so many smiling faces Saturday and Sunday, it touched all of us here at the railway. So from all of us here we'd like to say thank you one more time!

We also wanted to put a rumor to rest. NO! The railway is not closing down we're just finished with Thomas events. We will continue to operate at weekends and school holidays as normal.

Be sure to check us out at our next event "Small Engines Visiting Weekend" on September 22nd & 23rd. It's going to be a fun one!

The perfect day out with the kids in Hampshire

Eastleigh Lakeside Steam Railway is a popular attraction near to Southampton, perfect for a day out with the kids at the weekend or during school holidays. Our steam trains run from the main station at Eastleigh Parkway to Monks Brook Halt, offering the opportunity to visit the lakes, children’s playground and use the picnic tables for refreshments. The steam train returns back to the main station from Monks Brook Halt, with the entire trip totalling 15-20 minutes.

Our souvenir shop stocks the full range of Thomas and Bigjigs models for budding steam train enthusiasts!

We believe we have the largest collection of Miniature locomotives on a commercial railway, with a total of 24 in the collection; 21 being steam powered and most of them are in steam on gala days.
