Mid-Suffolk Light Railway

Welcome to 'The Middy'
Suffolk's only preserved standard gauge heritage railway
Suffolk Museum of the Year 2014/5
Heritage Railway Association Interpretation Award Winners 2012

The Mid-Suffolk Light Railway, affectionately known as "The Middy", was a classic case of a railway built too late for the great railway age and never paid its way. Indeed, it was effectively broke before it opened and the line was never fully completed, the rails just petering out in the middle of a field. But it still managed to struggle on against all odds for 50 years.

In 1991, after almost all traces of the line had disappeared, a group of enthusiasts decided that this country railway, once so important to the area should not be forgotten. 'The Middy', now resurrected as Suffolk's only standard gauge preserved railway and museum and is, ironically, probably busier than it ever was.

On a section of the original trackbed at Brockford the atmosphere of the MSLR has been recreated and in 2012 The MSLR became the Heritage Railway Association Interpretation Award Winners and in October 2014 Suffolk Museum of the Year.

Visitors can enjoy a steam train ride in our genuine Victorian 4-wheel coaches and perhaps even our 160 year old horsebox, from Brockford station, where we have original buildings, passenger and goods vehicles, displays, artefacts and exhibitions to Dovebrook 1/4 mile along the original route. You are assured a fascinating and informative visit.

In 2017 the Museum will be open between 11.00am and 5.00pm every summer Sunday and Bank holidays from 28th May until 28th August, plus our Steam Gala 9th & 10th September.
