The terminus station is called Howard’s Halt, which like the loco, is named in memory of Richard Howard, who died in 2018. He was the chairman of the trustees of Child Beale Trust, which administers the park.

The railway is located in Beale Wildlife Park and Gardens, Lower Basildon, Pangbourne, Berkshire.
