Open days

After the success of our Easter Sunday open day, our next one will be Sunday, 28th May, 2023. Our Wester Pickston site will open at 11am through to 4pm for the general public, with rides being offered on member’s steam and electric locomotives (7¼″ and 5″ gauge engines will be running on our 2km of track). The Miniature Road Vehicle members will be offering rides on steam powered engines around the site. The model railway shed (63A) will be open show casing O, OO and N gauge layouts. The 32mm gauge garden railway will be open and the workshop as well, so you can see how members work on their projects. It’s going to be a busy day!

Tickets for train rides will be available on the day at the station:

  • £3 per single ride, or
  • £10 for four tickets.

We accept all major credit / debit cards or cash.

In addition to all of this, there will be a cafe open on site, serving tea, coffee and cakes. There is also a grassy picnic area where you are welcome to bring your own food and watch the trains rolling in and out of the main station.

To get to Wester Pickston, please see the Find us page.
