Gartell Light Railway

Description

The Gartell Light Railway is owned and operated by three generations of the Gartell family. The railway runs on two-foot-gauge track and was first opened to the public in 1990. The line's principal station is at Common Lane, where there is a large car park, the NEW track-side refreshment room, ticket office and shop. The Visitor centre is located on platform 2 with various railway memorabilia. At present, the GLR is about three quarters of a mile in length, and half a mile runs along the track bed of the old Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway.

Outside of public open days, the railway is available for private bookings and the Pines Function Room is available to hire.
