Welcome back to our Railway!
In 2022 we are operating a normal calendar of regular operating days together with a busy programme of special events.

Children aged 3 and under travel free, child tickets are for those aged 4 - 16, senior tickets are for those aged 60 plus (standard running days only, ticket prices, ages and conditions may vary on special event days.) Well behaved dogs travel free.

When booking online please either print out your confirmation of booking or save it to your mobile phone. You will need to show this at our booking office at Furnace Sidings when you arrive in order to receive your travel tickets. Please do not board the train unless you have your travel tickets.

ACCESSIBILITY

IMPORTANT  NOTICE - APRIL 2022

 

Due to ongoing carriage maintenance, we deeply regret that wheelchair facilities are currently reduced. At present we cannot board wheelchairs onto the train, with all passengers needing to be able to walk or be carried from the platform through the relatively narrow doors onto a seat. We expect the carriage used to accommodate wheelchairs to resume service over the Easter weekend, following which it will once again be taken out of service for further maintenance, being used only on bank holidays until later in the Spring. 

We deeply regret the above. In addition to our usual carriage returning to service later in the summer, an additional carriage specifically adapted for wheelchair users will also enter service in the second half of this year.
