Jungle Express Train

The Jungle Express Train engine is called Zebedee, and was previously at Longleat. It was built in 1938 by Lister of Dursley in Gloucestershire. It pulls two specially built 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. It tends to run every hour in-between the feeding times and shows. It 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.

You board the train just by the otter enclosure and set off through the garden of Glanmor House, through the top section of the Parrot Jungle, then behind the scenes around the back of the house. The Jungle Express Train operates throughout the summer months weather permitting. On good weather winter days it may also be taken out for a spin! There is a small extra charge of £1 per person.

PLEASE NOTE: It is just a small route round the house grounds (not round the whole Park), and so you go around twice giving you a chance to look around both sides.
