Ruislip Lido Railway

Welcome

 

The pleasant journey takes you around the lake at Ruislip Lido, with the line weaving its way through the ancient Ruislip Woods. There are two main stations on the line where passengers can start and finish their journey. Woody Bay station is beside the beach & children’s splash pad, and it is the oldest terminus on the line. The other station is Willow Lawn station, located next to the car park and nearby the ‘Waters Edge’ pub & carvery. At Willow Lawn station, passengers can observe the locomotive being turned on the turntable, before the train heads back to Woody Bay.

All our trains are wheelchair, pushchair and buggy friendly. The service is normally operated by one of our large diesel locomotives. On weekends and Bank Holidays, our steam locomotive 'Mad Bess', which is a half scale version of the Ffestiniog Railway locomotive 'Blanche', may pull the train.

SERVICE UPDATE

Unfortunately, owing to a last minute staff shortage, no trains will run tomorrow (Sunday 19th June).

We are sorry if you planned to come to the railway for a ride tomorrow and the disappointment this may cause but with a 100% volunteer staff this happens from time to time. 

The railway will be running again as usual next weekend.
