2024 Steam Days
With Polar Bear still undergoing its 10 year overhaul, only one steam locomtive, Peter WB2067/1918, will be available in 2024. Planned steam days are here.
The Museum's programme of special events is also available on the Museum website.

Polar Bear
"Polar Bear" is now out of service pending boiler and mechanical repairs, a job expected to take about 2 years.
See separate news item.

A Just Giving page has been set up to raise the funds needed for this task. If you would like to help by making a donation we will be extremely grateful. Thank you in advance for your generosity. (Don't forget to use Gift Aid if you are a UK tax-payer as this increases the value of your donation by 25%)

Peldon
Peldon (J FOWLER Resilient JF21295) is currently undergoing a clutch and gearbox rebuild. Repairs to various components have now been made and the slow task of reassembly will start shortly. It is hoped that Peldon will return to serivce later in the year.

Visiting the Museum
The Museum will reopen to visitors in Wednesday 24 January 2024. Opening days will be Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday until Wednesday 7 February, 10:00 to 16:00, first train at 10:30, last train 15:30.

Commencing Saturay 10 February at the beginning of the local school half term week, the standard 5 day a week opening will restart, 10:00 to 16:30 on Wednesdays to Sundays (plus Bank Holiday Mondays). First train is at 10:30 with the service finishing just before 16:00.

Because of limitations on the number of cars that can be accommodated in the car park, visitors to the Museum, including members, are recommended to book their entry tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. The Museum's booking app will show "Fully Booked" once the limit is reached. However, if you are arriving by train or other means and you won't require a parking space, entry to the Museum will still be possible. There is no limit on the number of visitors allowed on site.

With that in mind, please use this link to book your tickets.
