Join us over the Bank Holiday Weekend and step back in time to experience travel as it would have been over 100 years ago. The restored vintage carriages will be brought out of the museum and steam hauled for visitors to enjoy a taste of rail travel of the past.

Midland Railway Trust volunteers will be on the trains in period costume to add to the atmosphere and answer your questions and for children there’s a special vintage themed I-Spy competition.

Visitors in Victorian costume travel at half price (on the day tickets only)

About Gift Aid

Gift Aid is available to UK tax payers, enabling the Midland Railway Trust to reclaim 25% of the amount paid from the government. Gift Aid visitors will receive vouchers to spend in the shops and buffets as a thank you for payment by this method. This represents excellent value for the visitor as well as benefiting the Midland Railway Trust.
