While the Middleton Railway is itself a charity, for the last few years it has also held an event to support an external charity. This year this event was to support Marie Curie, and it was held on the weekend of 4th to 6th May 2019.

Trains ran at their normal times, with the first train leaving Moor Road at 11.00 and the last one at 16.00.

Other features of this event were:

"Driver Experience"

A "driver experience" gives you the chance to drive one of our diesel locomotives for a short distance, up and down one of our sidings. This will be under instruction from one of our senior drivers, who will make sure that nothing can go wrong.

There are a number of special conditions that have to apply to this, and these are as follows.

Footplate Rides

A footplate ride gives you the opportunity to ride in the cab of a steam locomotive, for one return journey from Moor Road to Park Halt and back again. See for yourself just what has to be done to make these historic machines work!

There are a number of special conditions that do have to apply to this, however, and these are as follows.
