The History of The Saltburn Miniature Railway Ltd.
Obtained a unique locomtive
Saltburn Miniature Railway Association was formed. This was after a number of years when the line fell into dereliction.It was run in the fifties be C. Pickering who owned the Saltburn Motor Services. This was bought out by Cleveland Transit which was run by Langbaurgh Council, this sale also contained the railway. It ran for a year or so before finally closing. It was tried to be revived by one or two people but it never succeeded and laid almost derelict. This is when a meeting was held in Saltburn with the intention of forming an association to bring back the railway. The association was formed in 1983 with the first trains running in 1985.
This year we have celebrated our 70th anniversary and we have developed from being Saltburn Miniature Railway Association to being Saltburn Miniature Railway Ltd and we continue to go from strength to strength.
