The Rudyard Lake Steam Railway

The Rudyard Lake Steam Railway is a Victorian style narrow gauge steam railway which gives a delightful three mile return trip from the free car park at Rudyard Station along the side of Rudyard Lake.

 

It’s the ideal way to see the lake and get to it’s attractions. You can break your journey if you wish and children and dogs are welcome.

 

There are special event days throughout the year; please ring for details or see www.rlsr.org.

 

The steam train runs from 11.00am to 4.00pm on every Sunday from mid February to the end of November and on every Saturday and Bank Holiday from the start of April to tend of September.

 

It also runs midweek on school holidays, but ring or check the website www.rlsr.org for specific dates.

The railway is 10.25 inch gauge which is equivalent to half size Narrow Gauge. The trains run whatever the weather and all are covered coaches.
