The Phoenix Miniature Railway is situated within The Telford Steam Railway and is accessed from their platform or signed access.

Please use the car park as you turn off Bridge Road.

We have approx. 1/5 mile of continuous 5” ground level track which is designed into two circuits of the area, we also have a station, a 20’ tunnel and two bridges

All funds raised from passenger carrying is ploughed back into our railway.

Over the past few years we have greatly extended the track and replaced most of the sleepers and worn out track. We have doubled the length of our tunnel and built a Steaming Bay and Carriage Shed (another being built this year). The track signalling is now the process of being upgraded.

The Phoenix Model Engineering Society is pleased to be associated with Telford Steam Railway and is grateful to them for allowing us the use of their land.
