|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:01 am on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until August 22, 2021

Every Weekend, 24th July – 22nd August

On successive Weekends in 2021, 24th July – 22nd August, Vintage Trains will operate using a selection of our collection of older coaches, many of which date back to Victorian times and rarely see public use. These carriages form part of the Railway’s museum collection and include examples from the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Trust (L&YRT) and the Vintage Carriages Trust (VCT) which have been restored to pristine condition, and in the case of the L&YRT coaches, two from use as bungalows when their railway life came to an end.

Restricted Disabled Accessibility

The very nature of the vintage carriages fleet is that the coaches come from an age where access for disabled passengers was not a priority and therefore, as the vehicles are restored to their original condition, those wishing to travel on board our vintage train and have a disability may have difficulty boarding the train.

In addition, those disabled passengers with wheel chairs or motorised ‘buggies’ should be aware that the nature of the coaches means there is nowhere to store either wheelchairs or ‘buggies’ on the train, except in the guards van. Please speak to a member of station staff who may be able to assist.

Children's pushchairs and buggies

The vintage coaches that make up the Vintage Train were built in age when children’s pushchairs and buggies were a thing of the future and, as the vehicles that make up the train are restored to their original condition, there is no provision, except in the guards van, on the train to store them whilst you enjoy you journey back in time. Please speak to a member of station staff who may be able to assist.

Dogs

Due to the very nature of these historical carriages, please note that only assistance dogs are allowed in the vintage carriages used on Vintage Trains. Assistance dogs travel free of charge
