Please make sure you read this information before visiting us.
1/ Infants/Small Children
All children that travel on our trains need to be able to sit in the carriages unaided and support themselves, as required by our insurers. For this reason we have always had a policy of not carrying children under 2 years of age.
However, we are aware that even some 2 year-olds are not able to meet these criteria. From 2020 onwards, we reserve the right to refuse to carry ANY child who is unable to sit on its own seat without assistance, regardless of age. For the safety of all concerned, our decision is final.
2/ Bad Weather
It has long been the the case that we would operate the railway in inclement weather. There have always been a few ”diehard” passengers who would turn up regardless of the rain, but it is cold and miserable for everyone especially the drivers, station staff and those who have to get all the equipment out and put it away. We will therefore no longer routinely run trains in heavy or continuous rain. We hope to be able to post notice of this on this website on the day but, if in doubt, please ring 01932 565474 on operating days for the latest information.
