For those of you who like to plan ahead, we’ve confirmed our running days for 2019, and they are now all available to see on the Events Page of our website.

If you’re even more organised than that, you can even book tickets for most of our 2019 events now if you use our online ticket office. Bookings are now open for:

  • St Patrick’s Day
  • Easter Eggspress
  • May Public Holidays
  • Summer Steam trains, including the Bank Holiday weekend in August
  • New Year Mince Pie trains

You can also add Footplate Experiences to any booking (except Halloween and Christmas trains) for the whole year, so you can pick the date closest to a loved one’s birthday right now, for that special treat. Or treat yourself!

Bookings for Halloween and Christmas are not yet available, as we haven’t received confirmation from Merlin the Wizard and Santa Claus yet. If you want to be sure not to miss out on those, then join our mailing list today.

There may be one or two extra events and special days that get added later in the year, so keep an eye on our website and Facebook page.

Gift Vouchers

By popular demand, we have also added gift vouchers to our ticketing system this year. You can purchase a gift voucher for any of our events all year – including Halloween and Christmas, as well as footplate rides, add your own special message and have it emailed directly to your recipient.

They can then use the gift code and apply it to their own order for tickets for events any time in 2019.

General gift vouchers can be purchased for our ‘regular’ events throughout the year (including the footplate experiences), and you can also purchase specific vouchers for the Easter Eggspress, Halloween Spooky Trains and Lapland Express right now as well.

All you need to do is choose the value of gift voucher you want to buy, fill in the name and email address of your recipient, and add your own message. Check out as usual and pay for the tickets, and your friend or loved one will receive a lovely surprise in their email!

If you need any help with this, then please contact us.
