We have now finished our standard running days for the year and taking a little break before our Santa Specials in December.

Six Special Days of Santa Specials 2021


Things to make your visit stress-free: 

Please arrive in good time, at least 30 minutes before your departure time to check-in and visit our festive museum.

Please have proof of your booking ready to show on arrival, either printed or on your phone.

Due to the current Covid restrictions all visitors must wear a face mask when inside the gift shop and
traveling on the train unless exempt. These may be removed whilst eating and drinking.

Our Tea Room is open from 11:00-15:00 for a selection of tasty treats and hot drinks. (subject to staff availability)


Please note: 

As this is always a busy popular event, customers will not be able to re-visit the museum after their train

If you arrive late and miss your allocated time slot, although we will try our best to
accommodate you, we cannot guarantee entry at an alternative time.

Please dress warmly as the carriages will be ventilated. This is to ensure the safety of our passengers, volunteers and staff.

We look forward to welcoming you at Ribble Steam Railway….Merry Christmas!



We look forward to welcoming you in 2022.

(subject to Covid-19 Restrictions).
