THE WEST LANCASHIRE 
LIGHT RAILWAY


LANCASHIRE'S ONLY NARROW GAUGE RAILWAY


 


Welcome to our website!

Our railway is a short narrow-gauge passenger-carrying line in the village of Hesketh Bank, between Southport and Preston. 


It features locomotives, wagons and other 
equipment from long-gone industrial sites in 
Lancashire, other parts of the UK and overseas. 


We run steam trains on Sundays and Bank Holidays between April and October.


We also hold special event days, including galas, Teddy Bears’ Outings and Santa Specials.



Come and have a ride on our railway!



We will be delighted to see you, and you will be helping to preserve a valuable part of our industrial heritage.
