Please look after yourselves and each other, and we hope to open our railway and see you there as soon as it is safe to do so.

Hire a Train

Ideal for birthday parties, family events or a unique and memorable function of any kind, we offer the opportunity to hire one of our trains for your exclusive use.

Set within beautiful parkland, your guests will experience journeys around the railway behind one of our diesel or electric locomotives operated by our friendly volunteers.

Whether your party or function is railway themed, or you’re just looking for something a bit different, we are sure our trains will be hit with young and old.

To find out more information, please make a booking enquiry and one of our friendly volunteers will in touch to discuss further with you and answer any questions you may have.

Places are limited, so it is best to enquire and book early to avoid disappointment.
