Flamingo Land is a long established theme park in North Yorkshire, around the site is a 'miniature' railway. In winter only part of the site is open, mainly the zoo and a few smaller rides. The railway doesn't run out of season but you can see it as it winds its way around the park and at the back the trains and their strange looking single wheelers steam outline locos can be found.
The railway has quite a down at heel feel which many commercial miniature railways seem to have had. The gauge is larger than many miniature railways as it is around two foot gauge, which is very much narrow but the railway is very much miniature in character.
