We are currently closed to the general public , but have left information about our annual programme of events and experiences on the website as we will hopefully  reschedule when possible.
our timetable information has been suspended until the end of JUNE and we will update this whenever we are able to.

Our phones are not manned at the moment - if you need to contact us please e-mail [email protected] 

If you have already booked for an event , we are hopeful that we will reschedule when we are in a position to do so and would be grateful if you can bear with us where possible.

The East Somerset Railway relies on ticket income and donations to maintain our heritage railway for future generations, so we would be very grateful if you would reschedule when possible , or consider donating the value of your ticket to help during these financially uncertain times.

Currently the facility to make any advance bookings has been suspended

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.
