Mid Suffolk Light Railway Museum

The Mid Suffolk Light Railway, Suffolk's Museum of the Year, will be celebrating the arrival the very rare 1906 Cockerill Belgian tram engine on June 7th with a special ‘Belgian Day' featuring frites, waffles, chocolates and, of course, Belgian beer. 


The newly restored  tram engine is one of the few vertical boilered locomotives working in the country and is already proving popular with crews and visitors alike. 


With three locomotives now based at Brockford, 2015 promises to be the busiest ever  programme yet and steam trains will be running every Bank Holiday and summer Sundays until 31st August.


And all the railway's facilities including The Museum, cafe, shop trackside walk and real ale bar coach - The Kitchener Arms - will be open for business every day the railway is open and steam trains are running.


The MSLR will again be offering the very popular Driver Experience Courses. Anyone over 18 who ever wanted to be an engine driver, under expert supervision, can actually drive a full size steam locomotive. The MSLR Driver Experience is really competitively priced at £125.00. We will also be offering cab rides for £10.00 on selected days.
