A rare opportunity to find out what goes on behind the scenes at Moors Valley Railway.
Head on down to Kingsmere Station for a guided tour of the Moors Valley Railway workshop and engine shed.
A special train timetable will operate over the weekend featuring at least five engines including demonstration freight trains and shunting displays. You can take a look in the carriage sheds for coaches and wagons you may not usually see and unusual bits of memorabilia, including the original gas lamp from Ashley Heath station! Have a chat with some of the people who work on the engines, find out how an engine works and see what they are currently working on.
Trains will be running from 10.45am to 5.00pm – we hope you will also have a ride!
Driver for a Fiver
This year Moors Valley Railway is offering visitors the opportunity to be a ‘Driver for a Fiver’ and drive a real steam engine to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care during their Open Weekend.
A £5 donation will entitle budding train drivers to a short instruction period followed by the chance to drive the recently refurbished locomotive ‘Talos’ along a section of track to Kingsmere Station. Money raised will go to Macmillan which provides care and support and information for people living with cancer and their families.
‘Driver for a Fiver’ will operate on a first come first served basis throughout both days. Please note minimum age 13yrs. For more information call 01425 471415.
