After an exciting and very successful 50th anniversary year, we are looking forward to what 2018 will bring us!


We open for the season on Good Friday, but in the meantime there's lots going on behind the scenes, maintaining and improving the site and our collection of preserved engines and rolling stock.


We hope this year to be running our new Access Coach, so those with restricted mobility can have a ride on our trains. And our Quarry Bagnall loco Sybil should be making an appearance after restoration.



There's lots to do before Easter - visit our membership page to see how you can help!
