The Middleton Garden Railway is a 5″ scale garden railway in Romford owned by the Middleton family (of Ride On Railways Ltd)
It includes several impressive features, such as a footbridge, working signals and tunnel/loco storage area.
The line provides a great showcase for Ride On Railways’ products, such as their Trojan, Hercules and Jasper locomotives and rolling stock. Regular open days are held to allow you to get first hand experience before buying, and even have a drive yourself.
The MGR website is essential reading for anyone even considering building a garden railway, there are many pages showing the evolution of the line, from a simple loop to the pretty complex (for a garden railway) layout you can see above.
This really is a fantastic example of an extremely polished garden railway, with what many people would call some very ambitious features. Truely inspiring.
I will update the site again soon with a more in depth look at some of the features of this line.
