Our big event of the year - our two-day summer steam gala!

We bring together all your favourite attractions into one event!

Three engines in steam, plus diesels, also live steam model railways and heritage bus rides. Children's fairground ride, traditional games, rail catering van, cake stall. Live music in the marquee​.

The train departs Becconsall for Delph station every 20 minutes, The ride is not long (about 400m) but you can ride as many times as you like on your ticket. The first train is at 11.30, the last at 4.30.


At Delph the engine detaches from the train and runs round to the rear end, ready to pull the train back to Becconsall. You can stay on the train, or alight onto the platform to watch proceedings.

Don't forget to have a look in our shop at Becconsall Station. As well as a wide variety of railway-themed gifts, books and postcards, hot and cold drinks are available.
