Overview & description

Take a trip behind Yorkshire’s Great Little Steam Trains on this 15-inch narrow-gauge railway, running for three and-a-half miles through the beautiful South Pennine foothills.  The railway was once a standard gauge branch line which has been extensively redeveloped to become a popular all-weather family attraction!  Aside from the steam engines, there are outdoor playgrounds, a café, a tea room, a miniature railway, picnic areas, bouncy castles (weather-permitting), stunning views and a full programme of special events throughout the year including a Day Out with Thomas, the Easter Eggspress, Halloween Ghost Trains, Steam & Diesel Gala Weekend and Santa Specials to name but a few.
