Canberra Miniature Railway

The Canberra Miniature Railway runs train rides for the public. We're owned and maintained by the Canberra Society of Model and Experimental Engineers (CSMEE), a community non-profit society staffed entirely by volunteers. All profits go towards building, maintaining and extending the rolling stock, track and infrastructure.

    The CMR is proud to announce the return of train rides at dusk and in the dark for this season. On Saturday 17th September rides begin at 5pm so that the littlies can enjoy them before they're off to bed but the real fun begins at dusk and in the dark when our incredible light show comes alive! Many of our trains have light shows themselves but the greatest attractions are the animated lights around the tracks. Trains travel beside, around and even under thousands of computer-controlled lights.

  • Between Friday 16 December 2022 and Sunday 18 December 2022
    Over three nights the Canberra Miniature Railway is holding its Christmas On the Rails extravaganza, our biggest and most spectacular event of the year. Rides begin at 5:30pm so that the younger kiddies can enjoy them and still get home to bed in time but the real fun begins at dusk when Canberra's largest computer-controlled animated light show comes alive. You can ride the trains to Santa's grotto, visit him, then ride the trains back again! It's a Christmas experience not to be missed.
