THE 250,000th PASSENGER


Cutteslowe Park Miniature Railway is located in Oxford's largest public park and has

provided enjoyment for many generations of children. The Railway is operated by the

City of Oxford Society of Model Engineers, who in 2005  celebrated their 50th

Anniversary.


It is therefore very fitting that on the afternoon of Sunday 16th October 2005, 6 year old Kit

Wickham-Jones became the 250,000th passenger on the Railway. Kit was a little

bemused by all the attention, but this did not deter his enthusiasm for his rides on the

Railway.


A small memento of the occasion was presented by the Chairman of the Society, Mr

Denis Mulford. (See picture below)


The Railway is now very much a permanent feature of the Park having recently

secured a 25 year lease on the site and is looking forward to providing fun and

enjoyment to further generations of children, of all ages.
