SANTA SPECIALS

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 1st 2021

We have decided to postpone the opening of our 2021 Santa Specials online booking. This is to ensure that we can operate safely should any Covid restrictions come into force in the Autumn.

We will announce further details on Friday 1st October 2021. Updates will be posted on our website here and on our social media sites, #westlancs.

We apologies for any inconvenience caused by this delay.

Our normal Sunday services and events will continue under the current Covid-19 social distancing guidelines until the end of October 2021.

Thank you for your patience and support of our Heritage Railway.

On 19th September Ian Fairbrother visited us and took these fine photos:
