Come to Pulborough and Ride the Steam Trains

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.

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.

Steam Engine Pulborough on its home railway

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 have built a new station and ticket office, an engine shed and extended the carriage shed. We have built a tunnel and will add portals over the coming months.

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

If you go down to...

the railway on 25th and 26th July you're in for a big surprise. For every railway bear will be there because they're the days we're having our Teddy Bears' Picnics.


Two trains will be running all day but that's just the start. Our usual swing boats and fairground games will be there as well as free Punch and Judy shows. Members of the Sussex G Scale Society are bringing their big model railway layout.


You might be able to control one of the trains. Then as you ride on our trains you can see if you can spot the named teddies. A winner of a W.H. Smith voucher will be chosen at random from all the entries each day.


For these special events all adult tickets will be priced at £2.50 per ride. Children’s tickets will cost £2 each – remember to bring your own teddy bear to have a second ride for free. Your ticket will also entitle you to a free go on the swing boats or on one of the games.


There will be picnic tables for your own picnics so please do come and make a day

of it.


The teddy bears, swing boats and games (but not the model railway or the Punch

and Judy shows) will also be there on Wednesday, 29th July when our normal fares will apply.
