We are now closed to the public. We are currently hoping to re-open for our Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Saturday, April 3 2021.
However, when this is written (January 2021), we are in the depths of another lockdown, so there can be no certainty currently. We will keep this website updated as circumstances change.
When we are able to open, trains will run from 1130 to 1230 and from 1300 to 1600. The train will run with a significantly reduced capacity due to the need for social distance. Therefore, we will run trains “on demand” when needed, in order to prevent queues building up.
During 2021, our currently planned (hoped for?) events are as follows:
April 3,4,5 – Easter Egg Hunt
May 1,2,3 – Teddy Bear Outing
May 16 – Bus Rally, organised by Potteries Omnibus Preservation Society
June 12, 13 – Teddy Bear Outing
July 11, 12 – Classic Diesels & Steam weekend
August 7,8 – Military Trains weekend
August 28, 29 – Leafers at t’pit Classic Landrover Rally
August 30 – Classic Cars day
September 25, 26 – Steam Gala
We will make an announcement later in 2021 about our popular Halloween and Santa Special trains.
There is a one-way system in place around the station, and the train will be sanitised after each trip. Things will be different, but hopefully still fun and enjoyable.
We will need to ask each visitor, family or group for a name and contact phone number. This data will be used solely for “track and trace” should it be necessary. The data will be destroyed after 21 days, and will be used for no other purpose.
We would ask that, if at all possible, payments are made using a contactless card. We now have to ask that a face covering is worn when inside the shop.
