The railway runs a number of events through the year where special trains feature, either as part of larger community events or just on the railway
The now annual Wensleyale Festival will be held over the bank holiday weekend 25th to 28th May. Including local ales, craft ciders, Gin bar, street food and live music.
The first of our evening drinks trains will run on Saturday 28th April, with Gin being the theme. We will also have a fully stocked bar with Real Ale if Gin is not your thing. We are still working of the times and as soon as we have the details sorted the tickets will go on sale. Those of you who have been before will know how popular these trains are so book early to avoid disappointment !
Welcome to Jennifer
The new shed at Leeming is about to welcome its first new resident, Jennifer. She is a Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0 tank locomotive dating from 1942, and will be arriving sometime in the week of the 19th of March. In full working order she will be allocated to our steam services, which will soon be operating through the dale.
