Mid Suffolk Light Railway

[Mid Suffolk Light Railway Logo]The Mid Suffolk Light Railway (The Middy) was part of an ambitious project to link Haughley Junction, on the main Norwich - Ipswich line, with Halesworth, on the East Suffolk. Finance proved difficult, and the line opened for passengers, for only part of the distance, in 1908. The "Middy" had already gone into receivership.

Included in the attractions already at Brockford Station are:

Admission prices for the special events are £5 per adult £2.50 per child and family tickets are available. These prices include a ride on the train. On the ordinary opening days, admission is £1.50 per adult and 50p per child.
