The Downs Light Railway Trust is a education and preservation charity that owns and operates the world's oldest miniature railway. The Downs Light Railway built in the early 1920s around a preparatory school, reached its 90th birthday in 2016. The railway is maintained and run by children from the age of 7 years. It acts as an education catalyst teaching the children many practical and real life skills that a classroom education could never fulfil.
