WELCOME TO THE EAST SOMERSET RAILWAY

The 2021 timetable is now published

As things stand at the moment, we are still planning to go ahead with our Santa Special event in December - subject, of course, to all Coronavirus regulations. If things change and we cannot go ahead, we have plans in place for an exciting alternative event in the Spring. So if you've already bought a ticket - you will still be able to use it.
We will keep you updated here and on our Facebook page.

Our phones will not be manned during the period of lockdown, but if you wish to contact us or make a dining booking for 2021 please email us : [email protected] or send us a message via our Facebook page and we will reply within 24 hours.

The friendly steam railway

We provide a large, free car park, with a short walk to Cranmore Station.  This main station building houses the Whistlestop Cafe and Toilets at ground level and the Ticket Office and Shop at platform level.  For the children there is a Play Area situated next to the Cafe patio, so the adults can enjoy some refreshments while the kids let off steam!
 
The Whistlestop Cafe is only open on running days but the Office and Shop are also open Tuesday-Friday 10.30am-3.30pm.
 
As well as steam train rides we have many special events for visitors to enjoy throughout our season, plus a variety of dining trains to savour and for the enthusiast footplate experiences, to get up close to the wonder of steam!
 
East Somerset Models is an independent shop based in a small building on the left side of the car park.  They stock a wide range of model railway items and please see their website www.esmodels.co.uk for opening times and further details.
