Learning & History
Rhyl, the Marine Lake and Miniature Railway have a fascinating history.

We are lucky enough to have photographs, postcards, adverts and newspaper cuttings which document the development of the area. You can find lots of information on display in the Albert Barnes Room, which houses our accredited museum, here at the railway station.

However we have created a resource of interactive online activities to share this fascinating information. Work your way through the exercises to learn more about the Marine Lake and Rhyl Miniature Railway…
