South Downs Light Railway

Christmas is coming to SDLR!

December sees the wonderful season of Christmas arrive at South Downs Light Railway. This year, we're offering a Christmas Experience to remember. See our Christmas Experience page for more information and how to book. Get in quick, tickets will sell out fast!

Welcome to the website of the South Downs Light Railway

Our volunteer run railway is in the Pulborough Garden Centre, Stopham Road, Pulborough, RH20 1DS. Our trains will take you on an exciting trip through the gardens from Stopham Road Station.

We are re-opening for 2022 on Saturday 5th March 2022 following a successful Santa Season and some much needed maintenance work.

Trains run from March to September and are usually hauled by a real coal burning steam engine. It's great fun for adults and children alike.

The railway started in 2000 and we have carried many thousands of passengers on a journey of just under one mile.

We are always working to improve the railway and over the last few years, have built a new station and ticket office, an engine shed and extended the carriage shed. We have built a tunnel and added portals in 2017. Currently under construction is a purpose built water tower with coal bunker, and the re-installation of our turntable was completed in 2021. You can find out more about what we're doing and have done in the News section.

Come and see what we are up to and say hello. We pride ourselves on a friendly welcome.

Over on the right of this page (or below if you're using a small screen!) is a short video giving a quick look around our railway. Hit the play button and take a look. If you want to see a full run around our railway, take a look at the Journey page in the Railway section of the menu, where you'll see Tom taking Flying Scotsman for a trip around (he doesn't normally drive that quick, the video is double speed!)
