Friendly Engines @ Ribble Steam Railway (August 15 & 16)


The Ribble Steam Railway, on Chain Caul Road, Preston is getting all ‘Steamed Up’ ready for a very exciting event…..

August 15th & 16th sees the first visit of the Friendly Engines to Ribble Steam Railway.

Why not come down & see your favorite engines, they’ll all be lined up on display & ready to pose for photographs!

Two of the Friendly Engines have been picked to double-head the train rides, which run across the Dock Swingbridge past the Preston Marina and runs for a mile alongside the River Ribble, every hour – on the hour from 11 to 4 each day.

As well as hourly train rides the Railway Centre has a few extras lined up to make it a fun day for Families & Kids. There is Free Face Painting, a large indoor Garden Railway Layout and on sunday the Big Narrow Guage Diesel will be chugging up and down the full length of the main museum.

There is no need to book and your tickets are valid all day and for all trains.

The shop is also open selling souvenirs and gifts and our cafe is also available serving hot & cold drinks & snacks. There is ample free car parking directly outside the centre, so nothing extra to pay.

£5-50 Adults
£3-50 Children (over 3) and Concessions
Family Ticket (2+2) £15-00

The majority of your visit is undercover so it is a great day out even on a typical summers day!
