It is common knowledge that the HSE no longer supports HSG216 Passenger Carrying Miniature Railways – Guidance on Safe Practice.

The Passenger-Carrying Miniature Railway Safety Group (PCMRSG) has completed the initial draft of the new guidance document “Managing Health and Safety at passenger-carrying miniature railways” reflecting current health and safety practice.

The guide outlines the main risks of passenger-carrying miniature railways and some of the steps that can safeguard the health and safety of employees, operational staff, passengers and visitors. It contains practical advice for operators organising or managing passenger-carrying miniature railways up to 350mm (13¾”) gauge.

A consultation period on the draft guidance is now closed. Further information will be published shortly once the review of the comments has been completed.
