If you have a prepaid voucher for a Day Rover, you will also need to prebook a seat in order to guarantee travel.

We welcome visitors who arrive without pre-booking - but please note that as we are following the Covid -19 guidelines, our seating capacity is limited and  social distancing procedures are being followed throughout the site.

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.
