Step back in time and experience travel as it would have been over 100 years ago. In 2019 we are celebrating the 175th Anniversary of the formation of the Midland Railway, so join us for the celebrations and experience travelling in Midland style. For two special weekends, the restored vintage carriages will be brought out of the museum to operate train services for visitors. Midland Railway Trust volunteers will be on the trains in period costume to add to the atmosphere and answer your questions.
The first weekend is over the May Day Bank Holiday and runs from the 4th to the 6th May 2019 and the second opportunity to step back in time is during the August Bank Holiday from the 24th August to 26th August 2019.
Visitors in Victorian costume travel at half price. All of the usual attractions will be open.
