The Ribble Steam Railway is based on the docks at Preston. Visitors can travel behind one of our restored steam engines in old-fashioned carriages, enjoying a three-mile return trip around the dock and along the riverbank, taking in views that can only be seen from the railway. There is much more than just a train ride to enjoy – we have an extensive museum that houses a variety of industrial locomotives – some of which we invite you to get ‘hands on’ with – and a series of displays about the history of Preston Docks, its railways and operation. When you’ve visited the museum, why not relax with a snack and drink in the tea room and then look in our workshop, where you can see the progress on the many projects under way? The Railway is open every weekend and Bank Holiday from May to October, and also at Easter and on Sundays in April. In the winter, there is a Santa Special running on weekends in December.
There are also a number of special events taking place throughout the year – details can be found through the taking timetable.
