These trains run on certain Saturdays and Sundays from the 25th March 2017 until the end of October. In addition, some Bank Holiday Mondays and some Wednesdays in August are available.
The details of the booking procedure, the dates when these trains are available and the prices are all given in our party train leaflet: click here to download this as a pdf file. Please note that other discounted offers can not be applied to these prices.
Party trains run either in the morning or the afternoon, your choice!

Please note that the maximum capacity of the party coach does depend on which coaches are available for service, and so the figure of 40 people that is quoted in these sheets may not always be possible, but we can guarantee that at least 32 seats will be available.
We regret that not every weekend is available due to special events. All dates are offered as “subject to being available” and we operate the bookings on a first come first served basis. Bookings are only completed when a deposit of £25.00 has been received and acknowledged, and we can only guarantee to hold a booking for up to five days while waiting for the deposit to be paid.
As the Railway is run entirely by volunteers, there may not always be somebody available to take your call. Please leave your name and telephone number (twice) and we will call you back at the earliest opportunity. This may be the next day on occasions.
We are happy to discuss any other type of train hire or party you may have in mind. For school parties we can make special arrangements: please see our separate page for school visits for details of these.
Another form of party that we are happy to accommodate is for coach tours or similar, either to travel on one of our regular train services or (by special arrangement) on a charter train (as described below). More details of the facilities that we can provide for such tour parties are given on our separate page for the travel trade.
