OCTOBER 2020 After an unusual season, where circumstances beyond our control meant we could only run a couple of days for members, we are now closed for winter maintenance. We hope to be able to open to the public again in 2021, when the railway celebrates its 50th anniversary – we do hope you’ll be able to join us! Details will be published on this website in due course.
