Pleasureland Miniature Railway
Southport Pleasureland is home to the oldest continuously running 15-inch gauge miniature railway in the world. This track was first built by Mr GV Llewelyn in 1911 and was named ‘Llewelyn’s Miniature Railway’. The first steam train ‘King George V’ ran on the 17th May 1911. The track was sold to Harry Barlow in 1945 when it was renamed ‘Lakeside Miniature Railway’. After changing hands a couple more times, it was purchased by Norman Wallis in 2016, who has now begun to refurbish and improve the track and surroundings and hopes to create a heritage museum and improved facilities for everyone.
