Poplar Miniature Railway

Poplar Miniature Railway

Everybody loves a steam engine and we have got two of the prettiest ones for our line at Poplar Miniature Railway in Colchester, Essex.  The railway is now open, giving rides behind Poppy and Freddy with a bit of help from their diesel friend Poplar Lady.  Suitable for people of all ages but especially for young children, our line runs for 350 yards from the station in front of the play area.

The railway was designed to complement the lovely gardens and winds its way gently around Orchard Curve, Cottage Crossing and Folly Bank, taking three minutes to complete the circuit. Prices are £2 for everybody over the age of three for the first ride, but hold on to your tickets, as all subsequent rides on the same day are £1. 

The multi-ride cards are unfortunately no longer available to purchase, however, existing cards will be honoured until 31st December 2021.  

Please note that we cannot accept payments by card for sales of less than £2.

Please also note that the opening times listed to the side of this page are for Poplar Nurseries Garden Centre.  Please visit the link below to view the railway opening times and other details.
