Autumn Steam Gala

16th September 2023 @ 11:00 am - 17th September 2023 @ 4:30 pm

Our annual railway gala; frequent service of steam trains plus demonstration trains on the field railway. Our loco shed will be open for visits, and the WW1 Trench will be welcoming visitors.

We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting a unique vertical boiler locomotive “Taffy”. Owned by Patrick Keef, this unusual loco will be making its first visit to Apedale. It will join the expected line-up of the home fleet – “Stanhope”, Hudswell Clarke 1238, “Ogwen”, Orenstein 5662, and Hunslet 1215 – providing a varied operation with the six steam locos plus a supporting cast of Internal Combustion marvels.

Fares will be £8 adults, £4 children, £18 family. Tickets include general site admission, including access to the main shed (where there will be stalls and refreshments), the WW1 Trench and the Field Railway. Extra train tickets can be bought at standard fares.
