The Stansted Park Light Railway is the brain child of Geoff Jago
who, tired of running his quarter scale Denver & Rio Grande 2-8-0
steam locomotive around the very limited circle of track at the
Fareham & District Society of Model Engineers Club, decided to
create his own miniature railway. After 2 years spent searching
the area around Chichester and Havant he eventually obtained
the lease on a suitable site in the grounds of Stansted House near
Rowlands Castle in Hampshire. Assisted by three volunteers he
spent the next 2 ½ years building the railway from scratch.
Over the years the group of volunteers has grown to some 16 in number and the locomotive fleet increased to
6 steam and 4 petrol hydraulic locomotives, plus a third scale traction engine.
