Friendly Engines Fun!
The Ribble Steam Railway present our very own Friendly Engines on the line for three events every year.
The first is over the May Bank Holiday Weekend, the second coincides with Preston Dock's 'Riversway Festival' in July and then the third is over the August Bank Holiday Weekend with a grand Gala Party.
Are you all ready to catch your Party Train?
Looking for somewhere different to celebrate your birthday or special event? Want to create a fabulous and lasting memory?
Well hop on board our party train and keep the little ones entertained. Watch the twinkle grow in their eyes, as they experience the sheer delight of travelling by steam.
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.
Prototype Deltic at RSR
The prototype Deltic arrived at RSR on 9th August 2012 and is on public view in the museum until at least October 2014. 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.
Ribble Steam Railway houses a collection of treasures, including many priceless people. Due to year on year growth, this popular Preston attraction is now looking for people with new skills to join their enthusiastic volunteer team.
