Welcome to the Top Field Light Railway, we hope you enjoy your visit to our wonderful little railway.
We are a 7 1/4 inch gauge miniature railway located on the Top Field Campsite adjacent to the Whitwell & Reepham Station, set in the heart of rural Norfolk. Construction began in 2016, and the railway has continuously been maintained and operated by members of the Whitwell & Reepham Model Engineering Club.

Often when your train arrives in “Mill Lane”, you can see the standard gauge railway down the bottom as well other items of rolling stock or work being carried out. Then further down the line, you spot the loading ramp where the trains get off the trailers and on to the railway.
