Welcome to the Charnwood Forest Garden Railway website. The Charnwood Forest Garden Railway (CFR for short) is located at Rothley station at the GCR (Great Central Railway) Leicestershire and is set as a European narrow gauge railway. The railway started back in 2000 for a ‘Day out with Thomas’ weekend. At this time there were no plans to make it a permanent feature. The railway is a ‘G’ Scale layout. We now run a mixture of electric steam and diesel locos, battery powered and Live steam locos. Depending on what days you visit, means you may see (or have seen) different trains from around the world running. We run British outline narrow gauge, standard and narrow gauge DB, vintage steam, Austrian narrow gauge, American outline and not forgetting Thomas & Friends and Ivor the engine!!  

 The CFR runs an event allowing children to drive Thomas & Friends on Family Events. For further info Click here
