COVID-19 Arrangements

We would like to confirm our revised arrangements for our reopening. We are moving to card only sales, no cash. Tickets are available from the new ticket office at Rudyard Station and not on the train. We will be offering a return journey to Hunthouse Wood only, with no stop-offs en-route. Should you wish to alight at The Dam we will stop for dropping off only on the return journey, if you break your journey you will have to walk back to Rudyard. Carriages will be cleaned down on return to Rudyard Station prior to boarding of new passengers. The carriages have been modified to create two segregated compartments per carriage - these can seat up to 6 to allow for families and bubbles - no mixing please within a compartment. If you get off at Hunthouse Wood whilst the engine runs around, please return in the same compartment on the same train.

The station and footbridge are now one-way, with entry via the ticket office and exit at the far side of the station (car park side) or over the footbridge. Please queue in the car park maintaining social distancing between groups and wait to be called forward to make a ticket purchase. Marshals and signs will be in key places to explain everything.

Platform 2 Cafe and the toilets will remain closed. We have made everything as safe as possible and hope the "new normal" does not distract from your visit. We look forward to welcoming everyone back.

A narrow gauge railway running alongside Rudyard Lake, using the route of the old North Staffordshire Railway. We have a mixture of steam and diesel engines as well as covered carriages from both the old Rudyard Lake Steam Railway and the Isle of Mull Railway. 

Trains depart from our operations base at Rudyard Station which has free car parking. The trip runs from Rudyard Station to Hunthouse Wood, alongside Rudyard Lake. There is an intermediate stop at The Dam where you can break your journey to visit the Rudyard Lake visitor centre just a short walk away.

Trains run hourly from 11am to 4pm, March to November - see our website for more details of running days.
