Live Steam Days


Here at Glendale Junction, every so often, we like to open our own track located in our back garden to our customer's. This mean's anybody is welcome to bring their own loco's and run them on our track during our Live Steam days. See opposite for next Live Steam Day.


Please Note:

Health & Safety - All locos must be up to manufacturers standards and any alterations fully tested and proved.

We reserve the right to refuse permission for unsafe locos to be steamed and run. Insurance - Anyone running live steam locos at our premises will need to have their own Public Liability insurance covering this situation. If you are a paid-up member of the Association of 16mm Narrow Gauge Modellers they provide Public Liability up to £5,000,000.

Membership costs:

UK resident (18 years and older) £19.00

UK residents (Family) (One adult Member, together with second adult and/or children (Affiliates) living at the same address) £18.00

As part of the 16mm Assoc insurance conditions a steam test should be carried out and documented by the owner every 12 months in order to ensure the correct operation of the safety valve at the correct release pressure. This should be recorded on a copy of the Boiler Test Record Sheet. The boiler and the pipework installation should also be checked at the same time. These conditions can be viewed at:

If you have your own railway insurance this may provide you with Public Liability. It is unlikely that your household insurance will cover you for Public Liability in this instance even though it may cover your railway.

If you wish to run live steam on our track we will require proof of your Public Liability Insurance. If you are a member of the Association of 16mm Narrow Gauge Modellers, your membership card is not sufficient, as they are not replaced every time you renew your membership. The carrier sheet, which is sent with your magazine each quarter, will provide this proof, or some other proof of Public Liability cover if you are not a member will be needed.

We are sorry about any inconvenience this may cause, but we need to make sure everyone is safe and sound.


Hampton End


Hampton End is presented by Dale Gillard. Hampton End was a small branch line link serving a small village. Most of the freight that used the line was fish from the quayside. After the closure of the line many years ago, a group of local rail enthusiasts reinstalled the tracks & buildings & purchased a few foreign engines & stock. Hampton Halt, was added in September 2011. The branch line was the 3rd modification to Hampton End over its 10 years of exhibiting. Hampton Halt, serves a small village, where it terminates with a run-around loop.

If you are interested in having Hampton End at your show, please contact us for more details on 01778 343183.
