Sunday 18th March is the date of the Ultra Marathon at Walka and the railway will not be operating this Sunday to avoid interfering with the running of the event. We hope that after all the cancellations this year due to extreme weather conditions and other causes, we will be able to operate our regular running on each Sunday again from next week.
On the Steamfest weekend there will be NO public riding on Saturday 8th April. Full operation and public riding will take place on Sunday 9th April. Public are welcome to view the activities on Both Days.
