There are two tracks. The ground level track has 5 inch and 7.25 inch gauge rails, and is a single circular track with two platform faces in the station. The raised level track offers 5 inch, 3.5 inch and 2.5 inch gauge rails, and is “kidney” shaped, although there are current plans to extend this raised track to provide nearly double the run.

The Prospect Park Miniature Railway is owned and run by the Reading Society of Model Engineers.
