Welcome to our website!
Our railway is a short 2ft-gauge passenger line in the village of Hesketh Bank, between Southport and Preston.
We run steam trains on Sundays and Bank Holidays between April and October.
We also hold special event days, including Easter Egg Hunts, Galas, Teddy Bears’ Outings and Santa Specials.
This great little railway has a lot of atmosphere and an unusual history

OUR 'NEARLY FIFTY' GALA WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!
No fewer than four Quarry Hunslets assembled at West Lancs to haul our 'Nearly 50' gala trains. Other attractions included rides behind a 5" gauge live steam engine, drive-a-diesel, model railways, Meccano, a fairground, traditional games and vintage bus rides. On the Saturday evening we had live entertainment and food.
All-in-all a great weekend!
Come and join us!
There's always lots to do maintaining and improving our locomotives, rolling stock and operating facilities, not to mention crewing our trains and running the shop.
If you would like to get involved, we would be very pleased to see you.
