Please note that due to unforseen circumstances, steam will not be in operation over the Easter weekend – Diesel cab rides will be available on Sunday, and three locos of the diesel fleet will operate on BH Monday. Apologies for any disappointment.
Welcome to an outdoor adventure, cast in an ironstone quarry. Covering 19 acres of reclaimed quarry, railway tracks and nature trails, Rocks by Rail is a journey back in time.
It’s an unmissable opportunity to experience an awesome industrial landscape. Explore fascinating nature trails. Take a train trip. Drive a classic loco. Tour the workshop and loco yard. View the ironstone exhibition and learn about its importance throughout history.
Then sit back with a cuppa in a 1960s style café, or browse the Museum shop.
Rocks By Rail is a big value day out. Whether you’re a family seeking informative fun, a rail and digger enthusiast, or a teacher looking for ways to bring lessons to life – you’ll find the living ironstone museum so involving you’ll wonder where the hours went!
