Description

Visit the picturesque seaside town of Whitehead to experience the magic of steam.

On the historic 1907 platform at Whitehead Excursion Station you’ll board the train for a trip within their premises.

Hauled by their vintage steam engine and sitting in a 1960s carriage you will be transported to a bygone era. Afterwards, you will be able to see at close hand how the magnificent steam locomotive works.

There is also an additional option to enjoy a visit to the Platform 3 Cafe, or explore Whitehead Railway Museum (bookable separately) and discover the secrets of the RPSI's 100-year-old Midland Railway buildings, together with the more recent additions.

This is an experience like none other. Your day will certainly be one that you will not forget!

Train rides will be running 11am to 3:20pm, every 20 minutes.

Suitable for children (and adults) of all ages!

Note: Tickets need to be booked in advance and cannot be booked online on the day of the event.
