No train services this Sunday 24th March 2019

Unfortunately we are not able to open the Railway this weekend, as hoped. Unforeseen essential maintenance works mean our volunteers are needed to help get things back in order as quickly as possible. We hope to be able to open next weekend for our Mothering Sunday Cream Tea Specials. We apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused and hope to see you all soon.
