Leighton Buzzard Railway

The Leighton Buzzard Railway remembers the start of the war department light railways directorate in 1916 with a WW1 celebration event over two weekends.

The narrow gauge railway was built from WW1 surplus materials in 1919 to transport sand and gravel from the local quarries.

Train rides ran from Pages Park to Croix Pierre a fictitious French station with train drivers and workers dressed in war time clothing from that period.

We were delighted to supply some of our specialist WW1 clothing for this event and love the atmospheric pictures courtesy of Leighton Buzzard Railway.
