Summer Steam Extravaganza

Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th July 2020

A weekend steam enthusiasts will not want to miss! With all available locomotives in service operating to a special timetable, shuttle trains and visiting steam attractions.

Visiting locomotives will be making appearances from other 15 inch gauge railways, their identities will be revealed very soon on social media – keep checking our pages for updates!

Travel behind a visiting locomotive or one of the home fleet on the full railway, taking advantage of gala rover tickets to jump on and off the train as many times as you like. Or ride behind one of the smaller engines on the Discovery Shuttle.

Appreciate the model engineering skills of miniature locomotives on the demonstration 7 ¼ inch gauge railway at Lakeside Station.

Marvel at the fantastic Model Railway Layouts in Griffin Hall, or the traction engines of all sizes on display outside.

Entertainment will be provided by the delightful Fairground Organ and why not let the children try one of the traditional funfair rides on offer. 

For beer lovers, a delightful range of first class ales will be just the ticket from our award winning pub ‘The Signal Box Inn’.

Day rover tickets will be available and a very special timetable will be in operation.
