About Rhyl Miniature Railway
We are a 15 inch gauge miniature railway offering rides of a mile length around the Marine Lake in Rhyl which we have been doing since 1911. We still have the first loco that opened the railway on 1st May 1911 and we also operate some of the locos that were built between 1920 and 1926 to replace the two original locos after they were found to be too small. So on the steam loco front we have Prince Edward of Wales (1911) Joan (1920) Railway Queen (1921) Michael (1924) and Cagney (c1910). We also have a diesel loco called Clara (1961) and our Tram (1970). We also have Billy (1926) on display in our museum which is owned by the council. We run every weekend from Easter till end of sept and then school hols with us open everyday for the summer hols. We also have special event through the year at Easter, the second bank hols in May and the first weekend of Aug and our Santa Trains near Christmas.

Railway is run by few enthusiasts, nice atmosphere, had to wait for 15 minutes as we came at about 11 am which is probably the busiest time. Train journey took 7-10 minutes I’d say, it’s lovely to go around the lake. I like the idea that people who service the trains keep 100 years old trains in such a tidy condition. “Museum” is literally a one small room with a little train in it, we didn’t want to come in as there were too many people already there. Our 2 years old son enjoyed the experience.

Great fun and not that expensive £3 adults £2 kids, easy to find, free parking (if space) the people seem happy to be here, had a laugh with the old fella who Stubbs the tickets. Worth the trip just don’t expect the orient express.

Very quaint little railway going round the lake. Tickets are cheap and trains run every 15/20 minutes. Good scenery and little museum to look at before/afterwards.

Amazing miniature railway for all ages. £3 for adults and £2 for children. Diesel trains on weekdays and steam train at weekends. Even though we were all "adults" everyone enjoyed the 10 minute ride around the lake.

A nice outing but doesn’t take more than an hour or two. The little train is sweet and it’s a pleasant 5 minute ride around the lake. There’s a nice playground for young children. If you want to go crabbing be aware that it is not safe with small children. There is quite a drop and no barrier between you and the water. Also, we took our normal kid’s fishing nets which were no use at all because of the drop to the water. Buy the special ones that they sell. A nice place to spend an hour or so but wouldn’t return.
