Steam train rides near Twickenham


disabled access

Kempton Steam Railway is a new attraction of 2 ft gauge, giving rides pulled by a steam loco to the public on selected days, in a covered carriage that seats 4 abreast, with a dedicated wheelchair space. There is only one other steam train of such a large size giving rides anywhere in the London area. This is NOT a miniature railway. It was formerly the site of the Waterworks steam railway that hauled coal for three miles, which closed in 1945; we hope to re-open all three miles of track, subject to negotiating permissions. But we already have some track open for rides
The carriage takes wheelchairs with a ramp and access path. The (huge - with a 1000 tonne engine like the Titanic had) Kempton steam pumping engine museum that we share a site with, sells refreshments and has a loo; if you ask them, you may use their loo without paying to enter their museum. Our parking is free.
