Private Bookings Cancelled
Due to the current, and rapidly evolving, COVID-19 virus situation, in the interests of safety for our members and visitors the Box Hill Miniature Steam Railway Society has cancelled all Private Bookings and is not taking any future bookings until further notice. We hope to open our railway as soon as it is safe to do so, and apologise for any inconvenience.
