The Saltburn Minature Railway was established in 1947 as a tourist attraction, which it remains so until this day thanks to the hard work of the volunteers of the Saltburn Minature Railway Association.

The Line

Saltburn Miniature Railway Line

The line is a 1ft 3″ (381mm) Gauge and runs for 0.5 miles (800m) between two stations. The one way journey takes 15 minutes and costs £1 for adults and 50 pence for children one way.
