This miniature railway is hidden behind the enormous A & G price building. It runs along the Thames water front for approximately 900 metres, starting and finishing at the old Grahamstown railway station, which had not been in use since the 1920's. The track runs parallel with the waters edge for most of the journey. There are two small bridges, and a twenty metre long tunnel. I would recommend this railway to anyone in the area who wants to do something on a lazy Sunday.
OVERALL RATING: 8/10
