Our standard service runs every weekend  as well as Wednesdays and Thursdays in the height of the season.

We will be running some special events too, including Peppa Pig (August 7th) and our August Bank Holiday 'The Way We Were'. 


Tickets can be prebooked online up to 2 days before your date of travel. This will guarantee you a seat at the time of your choice. You are welcome to just turn up on the day, but any remaining tickets will be issued on a first come/ first served basis. We can only offer additional journeys if there is space available.

We look forward to seeing you in 2021.

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.
