Train back in operation

Cockington Green - June 9, 2022

Our ever-popular steam-train is once again back on track enabling visitors, big and small, to enjoy the panoramic views and fun of riding on this very special train. Important upgrades to the steam engine have been completed which were designed to ensure that the train is operating at maximum efficiency mechanically and, importantly, even greater minimisation of environmental impacts.

More than 20 years ago, the miniature steam-train was converted from wood and coal burning steam generation to gas-fired to provide increased comfort for patrons as well as significantly reducing environmental impacts. This novel and innovative decision has proved to be highly successful without ever removing the authenticity of a steam-operated locomotive. The miniature steam-train remains as one of Cockington Green Garden’s standout attractions.

We do apologise for any inconvenience caused by the recent train shutdown but are very happy to have our beloved steam-train back in operation.
