We welcome visits from schools, colleges and interest groups, as part of our continuing efforts to educate and inform the public about our industrial railway heritage.

We can offer a structured programme tailored to suit the group, with knowledgeble, enthusiastic guides keen to pass on their passion for narrow-gauge railways.

Visits can include steam and diesel locomotives hauling passenger and freight trains, also tours of  our workshop facilities. All visits are carefully planned and risk-assessed to ensure a safe, enjoyable event.

If you would just like to come to ride on the railway, without any special arrangements, that's fine. And if you have any sports cars, motorbikes or similar to bring, that would be even better!
