Re-Opening the Railway

We are pleased to anounce that we intend to re-open the Middleton Railway to visitors and passengers on 2nd August. Please see our revised "Trains" page for details of our Post-Lockdown Train Operations.

We hope to be able to run an event to celebrate our Diamond Jubilee later on in the year. These plans are all subject to no further lockdowns being imposed.

We hope that you and those close to you keep healthy and safe.
