Summerfields Miniature Railway, Bedford Model Engineering Society
We had a great morning out at the Summerfields Miniature Railway in May 2015. It’s open to the public on selected days throughout the year and is run by the Bedford Model Engineering Society. Rides on the train were £2 each and under 2s were free. It’s a good train ride which takes you to another area where you can get off the train and have a picnic. There’s also a bridge which toddler loved climbing up. There were sit on miniature tractors which go around the field which were £1 a go.
There were stalls selling toy vehicles – we could have easily picked up a few bargains so take some cash with you. There is a café but we took a picnic. There are toilets but no baby change facilities. There is a second hand furniture store there as well which is worth a pootle around. The address is Hammer Hill, Haynes, Bedford, MK45 3BH – postcode is approximate – only use it as a guide along with the following instructions as on some old sat navs it’s the wrong postcode. The track site can be found on the A600 between Cardington and Haynes. If you’re going there from Milton Keynes it’ll be on the right just before you get to Haynes. We visited in May 2015 – please do check out their website or facebook page for the latest prices, dates and facilities.
