This Bank Holiday there will be the a new addition to the annual calendar – coal trains!
Coal Train Weekend will see a mixture of Passenger and Freight trains operate with steam and diesel locomotives. This is the chance to see the new ‘mini-windcutter’ Mineral Wagons operating on a public open day.
The first train leaves Furnace Sidings at 11:00am and the last train arrives at 5:15pm. Refreshments can be purchased on board.
Alternatively, spend some time on the platform admiring the trains or having some food in the tea room. Eric’s Emporium will also be open so why not buy a memento of your visit.
