The railway is the only standard-gauge heritage railway in Wiltshire. It has vintage steam, diesel-hauled trains and DMUs restored and run on a railway built by volunteers.
You can find the railway on the site of Blunsdon Station between Swindon and Cirencester and the line uses part of the trackbed of the former Midland & South Western Junction Railway.
