The Canvey Island Miniature Railway has two separate tracks for our members and the public to ride on. The oldest track is a raised 5 inch & 3 1/2 inch gauge track that was constructed in the 1970s. It  is approximately 460 meters (1500 feet) in length; when we open to the public we take the public round the raised circuit twice.

The ground level track was constructed in the late 1990s. The track is a 7 1/4 inch & 5 inch gauge. The ground level track has a signal box, pneumatically operated points & signalling, bridges over water, turntables, and a carriage shed, and loading bays. The ground level track has an outer and inner circuit, and when we open to the public we go round both the outer and inner tracks. The total length of all the ground level track including sidings and running lines is approximately just under 1600 meters (1 mile) in length.
