There are two tracks at the railway.

The main circuit is multi gauge, ground level and caters for 31⁄2, 5 and 71⁄4 inch gauge. It is approximately 1km long and is used to give rides to the public as well as for club members’ use. Rail construction is made using rectangular section steel with welded ties on timber sleepers, laid on limestone ballast. Running is clockwise and the minimum radius is 50ft. Inclines are a maximum of 1:80 up and 1:56 down.

The second track, completed in 2012, is elevated and comprises 21⁄2, 31⁄2 and 5 inch gauge. The length is about 200m and, due to tight radii, is suitable only for short wheelbase locomotives. Minimum ground clearance is 13 inches and maximum is 45 inches. This is to avoid excessive inclines.
