Travel behind Hawk, Owl, Fox, Badger, Jay, Katie or Sian, our friendly little engines here at the home of Yorkshire’s Great Little Steam Trains. Climb aboard for a scenic journey along our 15” narrow-gauge railway, through the beautiful South Pennine foothills to our Shelley terminus where you can enjoy the panoramic views of the surrounding area. Visit Shelley Station Tea Room for refreshments or enjoy our large picnic area whilst the kids play on the outdoor playground. At Clayton West, the outdoor play area is ideal for children to ‘let off some steam’ whilst the adults browse the gift and model shop. The café serves hot and cold food and drink whenever the railway is open. Special events include: A Day Out with Thomas, Easter Eggspress, Steam & Diesel Gala, Halloween Ghost Trains and the Santa Specials. We cater for groups, school visits, children's birthdays, private functions and we also offer Driver Experience Courses. Open throughout the year - see our website for details.
