Jungle Express Train Zebedee
Enjoy a ride on our Jungle Express Train.
On good weather days Zebedee, the Jungle Express Train, will be out for a spin! You board the train near the picnic lawn and set off through the gardens of Glanmor House. It is just a small route of two circuits around the house grounds (not the whole Park) including the top section of Parrot Jungle, a trip through a tunnel leading to behind the scenes around the back of the house. For train times please check when you arrive. There is a small charge of £1 per person.
Zebedee, as he is called, was previously at Longleat. He was built in 1938 by Lister of Dursley in Gloucestershire. He pulls two specially designed open carriages which were rebuilt in 2008. The track is 15 inch gauge, is circular and about 750 foot (230m) long.
The train track needs to be dry for the brakes to grip, so in +wet weather the train can’t run – but if it is just a bit damp we treat the tracks with dry sand so that you can still enjoy a ride if possible. Zebedee will keep running while there are people in the queue until they have all been on. It then stops until the next allotted time displayed on the sign. On good weather winter days Zebedee may also be taken out for a spin!.
