The much-loved Croxteth Park Miniature Railway is set to make a triumphant return on Sunday 9 June.

Its restoration has been a true community endeavour, spearheaded by local resident Kevin Brown, Liverpool City Council, Croxteth Hall and Park, and a committed team of volunteers.

To celebrate the grand reopening, a special launch party will take place at 10:30am with the winner of a naming competition for the new engine revealed, before passenger rides begin at 11:30am.

“We are so proud to announce the highly anticipated and cherished Croxteth Park Miniature Railway will officially open on Sunday, 9th June,” said Kevin Brown.

“To celebrate this exciting occasion, we have planned several sessions throughout June.”

Originally built in 1981 and operational until 2009, the miniature railway has been lovingly restored to its former glory.

It operates along its original route, complete with diesel locomotives and occasional steam locomotives for special events.

The train journey begins at Croxteth Hall Halt Station, winds through the scenic grounds of Croxteth Park, and traverses the historic tunnel before returning to the station.

This restoration project has been a labour of love for Kevin Brown and his team of volunteers.

They have diligently worked to unearth, clear and restore the original track.

To avoid long queues, people are advised to book in advance at

The boarding location is the path leading to Croxteth Hall, after the bridge.
