Mr Ribble's Friendly Engines
The Ribble Steam Railway present our very own Friendly Engines on the line for two major events every year.
The first is over the May Bank Holiday Weekend and the second is over the August Bank Holiday Weekend with a grand Gala Party.
All the Friendly Engines events include many activities for younger children to take part. We have free face painting from Gina (Tiger Feet Entertainment) in the museum building.
There are great photographic opportunities for the kids to have their photographs taken with the Ribble Steam Railway's own Friendly Engines on the platform or around the large museum building.
All the Friendly Engine faces are exclusive to the Ribble Steam Railway having been made for us by the Blackpool Illuminations Department.
