Train Rides

We regularly give train rides to the public on our track at Vivary Park.
Age is no barrier! The kids love it and the grandparents think it is great fun too.
Tickets cost just £1 per ride.
Our station master will even punch your ticket for you!
(Running is dependent on weather and safety conditions).

We are sorry but we are unable to give rides on Bank Holiday Mondays due to car parking restrictions.

Our new site at West Buckland will be open for train rideas later in 2024.
