The Strawberry Line – Avon Valley Country Park

The Strawberry Line is Britain’s only commercial ground level 5″ railway.

It is based at Avon Valley Country Park, near Bristol, and currently has 5 steam locomotives and 12 battery powered locomotives.

This line is obviously much bigger than your average garden railway, but can still provide some good ideas and inspiration for your own line – I recommend visiting it if you are in the area.

Some of my favourite features of this line are the 60ft long tunnel and working water column for steam locos.

For those who aren’t able to travel on this line themselves, I found a cab view video on Youtube:
