About Us

Who we are

Ride on Railways is a family run business based in Romford, Essex, producing quality engineered ride on railway items for 5", 7 1/4" and 10 1/4" gauge railways. While initially aimed at the garden railway market, the robust designs have found themselves equally at home on the larger private and club layouts. 


Started in 2001, it wasn't until 2008 we moved to a small business unit along with investment in workshop equipment which we couldn't previously accommodate.
Most items are built in house but some specialist parts are contracted out

If you are unsure please feel free to pick up the phone or come and see us.

Local Production

Where ever possible we use UK manufactures/suppliers but we have to be realistic as we all live in a global market.  

We are a small company with most items made to order. Please call to find out current lead times .
