THE WEST LANCASHIRE LIGHT RAILWAY
LANCASHIRE'S ONLY NARROW GAUGE RAILWAY
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 from Easter to the end of 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
Next Sunday, April 22nd, is our annual Friendly Engines Day.
Two engines in steam, plus diesels, with friendly faces, and fairground attractions.
A day particularly for families - why not let your nearest and dearest drive one of our diesel engines?
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.
