WELCOME TO THE EAST SOMERSET RAILWAY

 

The 2021 timetable is now published 

(subject to any Covid restrictions which may be in place)

Our first steaming of the year will take place on Wednesday April 14th. 

Our standard service will then be running every weekend from Saturday April 17th  as well as Wednesdays and Thursdays in the height of the season. We will hopefully be running some special events too, including childrens' characters and our August Bank Holiday 'The Way We Were'. We will publish details as soon as we are able.

Our 2021 Steam Gala will take place on the weekend of April 24th and 25th 

Ideally, all tickets should be booked in advance to guarantee a seat - although you are welcome to just turn up.

We look forward to seeing you in 2021.

Our office and phone lines will be closed during the period of lockdown.

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.
