Wat Tyler Miniature Railway 10 ¼ inch 

This railway first opened in 1988, using Severn Lamb locomotive 'Western Courier' and coaches from the Basildon Zoo Railway, which closed the previous year. Originally operated by Derek Bundock, the line runs for 1200 yards through Wat Tyler Country Park, taking passengers from the boat museum car park to the marina. An extension is planned to open in 2011. Now operated by leisure company Go Bonkers, after a period of closure, motive power consists of two IC locomotives.
