The Midland Railway – Butterley will be running trains every day over the half term holiday of the 11th to the 19th February as well as every weekend until 1st April.
As a special offer every passenger can enjoy a free hot drink from Butterley Buffet to keep the winter chills at bay. A children’s entertainer will be at the railway all week.
Over the winter the railway will be using Diesel Multiple units. These trains allow visitors to have a Driver’s eye view of the track and even see the driver at work. They also allow a much more frequent service.
The Railway Museum and Country Park will be open, weather permitting, as will the Victorian Railwayman’s Church and the Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust West Shed. In the West Shed there will be children’s craft activities including the very popular “make a junk model train”. The shop at Butterley Station is also having a sale with some substantial reductions.
Alan Calladine the Midland Railway Trust Development Officer said “We run trains throughout the year with a range of special events. The Winter Warmer Trains are a chance to enjoy the railway at a quieter time of the year, and enjoy a hot drink in our Station Buffet as well as a train ride and the chance to pick up a bargain book.”
The Winter Warmer Trains will run from 11.00 am to 2.50pm every day from 11th to the 19th February. For further information please contact us.
