Visiting Ribble Steam Railway in 2023


We start the year by running steam trains on the Wednesday and Saturday of February half term week.
We then run trains every Saturday from the beginning of April to the end of September.
We also run trains on Good Friday, Easter Sunday & Easter Monday and other
Bank Holiday Sundays and Mondays throughout the year. We usually run our vintage
Rail Bus on Wednesdays during August. In October we run our Spooky Trains for
Halloween Weekend, and we finish the year with our Santa Specials in December
