Don’t Miss:

A ride in the Victorian coaches of our steam train If you have time, especially if you are staying in the area, you could add the Bressingham Steam Museum, the Mechanical Music Museum in Cotton and the Museum of East Anglian Life in Stowmarket to your itinerary. That way you can spend a whole day in the mid 20th century and earlier before returning to the hurly burly of the 21st!

In 1990 a group was set up with the aim of preserving the memory of the MSLR on the site of the old Brockford Station cattle dock, a wall of which was still standing in the corner of a field. Despite the whole line being taken up in 1953, all the rolling stock scrapped and the buildings scattered around the county in various states of dereliction, the Mid-Suffolk Light Railway Museum, a registered charity, has created a popular tourist attraction dedicated to remembering what was affectionately known as the ‘Middy’.

Now boasting a purpose built refreshment room, shop, ticket office and museum, with workshops, authentic rolling stock, some original buildings and a demonstration line, the MSLR Museum recreates a slice of Edwardian railway travel that everyone can enjoy.

Opening Times:

Opening times are 11am – 5pm. Trains typically run every 20 minutes on operating days, though this may vary for some special events.

The MSLR is open on all Sundays and Bank Holidays from the beginning of May until the end of September (some days may be replaced by operating days – see below). Additionally there are some operating days outside the main season.

Trains on operating days will be steam hauled unless stated otherwise. Our museum, shop and refreshment room will be open on all days and our real ale bar, the Kitchener Arms, is open April to August inclusive.
