Welcome to the Downs Light Railway Trust
The Downs Light Railway Trust is an independent registered charitable organisation, who own and operate the Downs Light Railway for the educational benefit of children.
Situated within the grounds of The Downs Malvern, the Downs Light Railway is the world's oldest, and most internationally renowned, private miniature railway. At the track gauge of 9 ½ inches in width, it is one of a handful of railways of this gauge - once a popular size for many estate railways of the Edwardian Era.
The Downs Light Railway Trust has a small collection of narrow gauge locomotives, together with some ⅞ mile of track around the school grounds. The children meet once a week during the school timetable to maintain and operate the railway.
