It’s much more than a train ride!

Scenic Rail Britain aims to help tourists, day-trippers and families, travelling from near and far, to access the country’s hidden gems, while travelling sustainably and avoiding the stresses of driving. At Community Rail Network, we see the lovely sights that community railways have to offer every day. We want to share that with more people and promote these amazing railway lines, which form such an important part of our heritage.
