The narrow-gauge railway line between Leadhills and Wanlockhead was closed just before World War II.



The early years of the railway project saw the great progress with most of the line put back in use with mini-locomotives hauling delighted visitors up and down the restored stretch during summer months, helping raise funds towards the full restoration.



By August 2018, the plan will be successful. The Scotland Tourism Board and the Railway Authority are moving its plan to rebuild this railway route by 2020.



The Wanlockhead Station platform will be rebuild for the final arrival of the trains.



Once, this will start, the narrow gauge railway can run right through to Wanlockhead and it will boost the passenger numbers as well as being good for tourism and attractions such as the Museum of Lead Mining and the world’s oldest lending library in the village.
