Miniature railway run by the Harrow and Wembley Society of Model Engineers. The Club had existed from the mid -1930s and had had miniature layouts on a number of west London sites and were seeking a new one in the early 1907s. Harrow Council had decided to develop an old rubbish tip as a park. In September 1975 the club came to an agreement to use the site and the track was laid plus some facilities. A station was built and eventually the site was opened by the Mayor. The site has been expanded since and passengers are taken round the track every Sunday.
