A look at the model railway at Abbotsfield Park in Flixton, Manchester.
Last Saturday we were driving from the Trafford Centre to Altrincham and decided to take a 'scenic' route. It's always interesting exploring new places and over the years we've found a number of hidden and previously unknown miniature golf courses this way.

This time however we spotted a miniature railway at Abbotsfield Park in Flixton.

The model railway at Abbotsfield Park is operated by the Urmston & District Model Engineering Society.
You can get rides around the park and there was a train running while we were there. But it was very very rainy so we didn't have a go on it.
Since we moved up to Greater Manchester we've found quite a few miniature railways. There are three in Stockport borough!
