Easter Monday Family Fun
The Ribble Steam Railway, situated on Preston Dock are running Steam Train rides all day on Easter Monday with fun for all the family. The trains run on the hour starting at 11am until last departure at 4pm.
There is no need to book and your day ticket allows you to travel as often as you like on the three mile scenic return trip across the dock and alongside the banks of the River Ribble. The Museum and Workshop are included on your visit and there is an Easter Egg Hunt to be solved which will involve finding hidden eggs around the railway.

Weekend Steam Train Rides
Visit the Ribble Steam Railway on any weekend between May and September for steam train rides along our line. The three mile return trip includes crossing the dock swing bridge (a unique feature on our line) and then along the bank of the River Ribble, giving views of The City of Preston that are unique. Train Rides leave from the museum platform at 1100, 1200, 1300, 1400, 1500 and 1600 and your Day Ticket enables you to travel on as many rides as you wish on the day of your visit.
Big, Blue and Built in Preston
The prototype Deltic arrived at RSR on 9th August 2012 and is on public view in the museum until at least October 2015. She has kindly been loaned by the NRM. The loco was built in 1955 in Preston, only about a mile from where she is now proudly displayed.
