Grosvenor Park Miniature Railway 7 ¼ inch

The Grosvenor Park Miniature Railway first opened in 1996, originally designed for just one season to commemorate the centenary of the Duke of Westminster's railway at nearby Eaton Hall. The brainchild of miniature railway author Roger Greatrex, the current owner Stephen Hardin took over in 2000, upgrading the line and its motive power. The line runs for ¼ mile in a large circle round an ornamental lake, enroute travelling over a bridge and passing over two level crossings. The main motive power is a Greatrex built Union Pacific with the steam outline locomotive being used on a new coin in slot line adjacent to the station.
