Taunton Model Engineers (TME) have built a miniature railway on the Creech Recreation Park which is open to the public with the following running dates for 2015:

Normally running times are 2pm to 5pm, subject to weather and demand.

The railway is virtually complete and caters for locomotives of five-inch and the larger seven-and-a-quarter-inch-gauge. The railway is around half a mile in length and provides a ride which goes through a cutting, round a loop past a new station (still to be completed), and returns through the trees adjacent to the M5.

Passenger numbers are small compared to those of Vivary Park but have been growing steadily. TME would like to be regarded as an asset to Creech St Michael and are actively seeking ways to integrate with village activities.
