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
** NEWS UPDATE **
TEDDY BEARS COME TO WEST LANCS
Last Sunday was our annual Teddy Bears Outing, when the bears in our woods wake up from winter hibernation and come to see what mischief they can get up to.
And there were lots of children with teddy bears too, taking advantage of our half-fare offer to ride the trains and enjoy our numerous attractions.
As well as fairground rides, games and the ever-popular catering van, drive-a-diesel was on offer and our live-steam layout 'Hundred End' was in operation.
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.
More details are here.
