The Railway’s past is inextricably linked to that of the area's industry. The railways provided industries with a vital link to the country’s network of import, export, raw materials and, most importantly, workers. Even in those utilitarian times however, the East Lancashire Railway provided a leisure-time service for holidaying workers.
Today, the East Lancashire Railway is one of Lancashire's top family attractions, hosting events all through the year. Don't miss their popular Thomas the Tank events, and of course, the hugely popular Santa Specials!
