This event is running on Saturday 2nd September

For summer 2023, steam is back (apart from some of our special events). Running on selected dates this summer, our O&K steam locomotive will be running to our standard timetable with standard fares throughout the summer. As well as the steam trains, you can explore our station, museum, signal cabin, carriage and locomotive collection, and model railway. There’s also our gift shop and the buffet train at Inch Abbey, where you can also take the short walk down to Inch Abbey itself.

Details of fares and timetables can be found here.

Trains are running on Saturdays 22nd and 29th July, 5th, 19th and 26th August and 2nd September. On other weekends we are running special events – see the dates page here for details.
