Having a party, celebration, or family outing? You can hire your own train for as little as 3.16 per person*.

Hire a 2-coach train (95 seats) with diesel haulage from 300, or experience a real steam locomotive for an extra 50. More details will be added soon, but in the meantime please feel free to contact us via e-mail or call the Booking Office on (01604) 820 327 (Telephone manned on operating days — recorded message at other times).

Train hire is not usually available on running days or during special events. On most running days you can hire a coach which will be available for the exclusive use of your party, and will run as part of the scheduled train service on that day. The cost is 90 for a coach with 31 seats, or 115 for a coach with 64 seats. Full details of running days and events can be found on the Special Events page.

*The figure of 3.16 refers to a 2-coach train with diesel haulage for 300. There are 95 seats available, therefore the cost per person if all seats are filled is: 300 divided by 95 = 3.16.
