Late Summer Steam Days


Experience the atmosphere, sounds and smells of a real steam railway and get up close to our impressive collection of steam engines, diesel locomotives and vintage carriages

One of our steam engines will be running along our 1/4 mile track on these relaxed operating dates – and you will be able to ride in the carriage behind – so bring the family, bring a picnic and spend the day with us. 

Trains will be running from 11:00 - 15:30
