Stapleford Miniature Railway is a historic steam locomotive-hauled 10.25 inch (260 mm) gauge railway at Stapleford Park, near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire. Considered one of the finest examples of its type, the railway is now private but still attracts thousands of visitors from the UK and abroad during its two public charity events each year. We visited the railway on August Bank Holiday Monday last year when there was also a large Country Fair on the go as well, more of that another time.
Almost ready to depart with another train on the 2 miles (3.2 km.) railway is miniature A4 4-6-2 Pacific Sir Nigel Gresley, on loan from the Eastleigh Lakeside Railway for the weekend. More about the railway here http://www.miniaturerailwayworld.co.uk/Stapleford.html
