|Somesay Island Railway/Chemin de fer de l’Ondit is a medium sized model railway operating in a back garden.
Between 1998 and 2018 the railway has been operated by scores of invited guests as part of a concerted campaign to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care. That campaign has now been brought to a close, with, at the last count, over £59,400 having been donated by happy operators to Marie Curie. We are indebted to all visitors and supporters who have contributed to this result
Closure of part of the system was enacted on 2nd September 2018 with a formal “Last Train to Port Pourri”. The line is currently
closed for some major reconstruction of those sections that will remain open, but which had decayed beyond repair.
The Railway will NOT be open to visitors during any of the Bank Holidays in 2019.
When the rebuilding works are complete they will be described in this website.
