First train out 10-00 each day , then departing every 15-30 minutes depending on passengers

 

Please note that operational requirements and mechanical failures may remove a locomotive from service at any time and no guarantee can be made as to a particular loco appearing

The railway can get very busy from 1300-1600 so early birds avoid any queuing or why not stay later when it quietens down again.

 

Special multiple trip tickets allow you to sample all the motive power throughout the day

We are a very friendly family railway, and try to accommodate the needs of enthusiasts and photographers, However, we apologise that due to staffing requirements, line-side permits can be difficult to give but we will try if at all possible

There is though adequate public access to line-side locations, including above the tunnel and next to the cutting, and also a large raised viewing area above the loco-shed steaming apron, allowing some nice pictures of locomotive firing and preparation

Our public events since 1995 are supporting the FSMR nominated charity of

LOROS
