|To the trains|
This week we found out there was a miniature railway at South Park in Cheadle Hulme! Once we heard about it we had to go and take a look.

The miniature railway is operated by Stockport Model Engineers and it's a marvellous looking layout.
The Friends of South Park tell me that the railway runs on Sundays between 11am and 3pm - weather and volunteer permitting. We're looking forward to having a go on it in the future.
|Two days too early|
|The track is quite a long one|
|It stretches down the much of the side of the park|
|And also goes into some covered areas|
|There's also a 'branch line' that ends at the second car park!|
Since we moved to Cheadle Hulme we've found quite a few miniature railways in the area. Our other local ones in Stockport are the Dragon Miniature Railway at the Wyevale Garden Centre in Marple and Brookside Miniature Railway in Poynton. We've also recently visit Miniature Railways in Wigan, Southport and Chester.
We're also currently working our way through the parks of Stockport challenge set by the Friends of Alexandra Park. We've now been to 11 of the 33 on the Stockport Nature Watch list. Plus a few more not on the list.
|There's a little skatepark at South Park too. I'll have to take my BMX with me next time...|
