Portable narrow gauge railway needed!

Hi everyone

I’m trying to track down a portable ride-on narrow gauge railway for our festival, which is to be held 3rd-5th September in Wallingford, Oxon. Bunkfest is a major roots music festival with over 20 venues and a substantial craft and trader village in a picturesque location. We have a display of traction engines both full size and miniature, plus tractors and other vintage machinery, and a beer festival on the same site. Also, we stage events on our local full size steam railway, the Cholsey & Wallingford (The Bunk) after which the festival is named. Thousands of people visit, its enormous fun.

I’d be most grateful if anyone could put me in touch with anyone who does this sort of thing, as it would be a perfect adjunct to the rest of our activities. Please have a look at the website and feel free to circulate my contact details.

Thanks for your help.

Best wishes,
Dave Newson, Festival Director.
