* We run trains on Sunday afternoons from 2pm to 4pm. This does depend on weather conditions, as firing a live steam engine becomes very difficult in wet or windy conditions. The field should also be dry otherwise we may get our vehicles stuck loading engines onto the track!

Sometimes you will see engines running on Wednesday afternoons - We don't usually open for public but may give you a ride if you're interested. We use these for working on our locomotives and testing them round our track.
