Mixed Traction in the Valley

Friday 17th, Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th June 2022

Due to the availability of steam traction, this event has been altered to showcase some diesel locomotives too.

Mixed Traction Event: It is with regret that we will not be able to operate the Ravenstor incline trains as originally scheduled due to not having enough volunteers available. In addition, we will also not be able to offer the travelling breakfast service on Friday for the same reason. We hope you still have an enjoyable visit. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us should you wish to become a volunteer and help us keep the wheels turning in the future.


Grab a Day Rover and hop on and off all day on the date of your choice.
