Wagons and Coaches

The Leighton Buzzard Railway has over 120 wagons in its collection, covering the wide range of industries which once used narrow-gauge railways as an integral part of their operations. Some are still in regular active service, employed on the maintenance of the railway. The heritage railway operation, when it started in 1968, also converted wagons with seats at first, but over the years a collection of dedicated passenger coaches has been bought or built.
