40th Anniversary Weekend Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th June

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the Ruislip Lido Railway Society which was formed in 1979 to maintain and improve the narrow gauge railway that you see today skirting the edges of the Ruislip Lido Lake.

We would love you to be here and celebrate this important milestone in our history by joining us over the weekend of the 15th & 16th June when our workshop at Woody Bay will be open to the public with various locomotives on display and pictures of our activities throughout the years.

As a thank you to everyone who supported us by paying fares to travel on our railway, there will be a two train service which will be free for all to ride this weekend so please come down and see us if you can!        

Searching the RLR on TfL

If you are trying to search for a journey on the RLR using the TfL Planner tool, then read on! There has been some changes made to the planner in recent months, which means our three stations now do not come up as suggestions. But they are still there, along with all of our timetabled trains. To make the tool work, you MUST type in "Ruislip Common" as the origin, destination or via point but DO NOT select the suggested Ruislip Common that appears in the drop down. Just type it in, then plan your journey. On the next page, the planner will ask you which one you want... And down at the bottom, are our stations:

Once you've done this, you can plan interchanges with our trains (when we are running of course!) and plan your drop off at London's least used and possibly London's only request station, Haste Hill (trains only drop off at Haste Hill from Woody Bay).
