A Narrow Gauge railway has been built by volunteers which reflects the factory railway that once took dangerous cargo safely from one location to another for processing. It is called the 'Hidden Railway', honouring the top secret nature of the working site. The railway is 2' 6" gauge and has a diesel engine, and cargo wagons converted to carry passengers. You can travel at a small charge close to a mile through woodland to the northern part of the site and back. When is the Narrow Gauge Railway Next Running ? Sunday 27 October / Wednesday 30 October Buy your ticket at the Ticket Trailer by rocket roundabout when you arrive and book your place. 1 wheelchair space.
Price: Adults £2 and children £1.
Up until January 1917 all rolling stock was moved by manual labour, but with the demands of the First World War, locomotives were introduced to move explosives and propellants around the site, plus bring in raw materials from the standard gauge railway at the Royal Small Arms Factory which lay to the south of the Royal Gunpowder Mills.
