WELCOME to the Leadhills and Wanlockhead Railway which is Britains highest narrow gauge adhesion railway, reaching 1,498 feet above sea level.
Operated and managed by a team of dedicated enthusiasts, all of whom are volunteers, the railway welcomes visitors every weekend during the summer months. We also run special events outwith these times and hope that families enjoy our Easter,Teddy Bear, Diesel Gala and Santa Weekends. On Saturdays and Sundays, the trains run frequently, with journey time taking 25 minutes.
The journey takes you from the station at Leadhills to the terminus at Glengonnar halt before returning back to the station. The train runs past the disused Glengonnar Mine, where minerals were first excavated in the 1450s.
The narrow gauge track has been built on the original track bed of the Caledonian Railway and today runs a variety of historic industrial diesel locomotives. Visitors are invited to explore the signal box and railway shed, view the trains and wander around our shop and small museum.
