Train running again

Cockington Green - August 23, 2022

Cockington Green Gardens’ much loved 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. The team have completed some important upgrades to the steam engine designed to ensure that the train is operating at maximum efficiency mechanically and environmentally ahead of the upcoming busy Floriade and school holiday period in September and October.

As noted in a recent article, 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.
