Little railway, BIG adventures! At the home of Yorkshire's Great Little Steam Trains you’ll find real narrow-gauge steam engines, outdoor playgrounds, a café, a miniature ride-on railway, an ice cream parlour, gift/toy shop and loads of good old fashioned family fun.
A return ride along the scenic 3.5 mile line can be completed in just over an hour or you can extend your visit by hopping off for a bite to eat or a play in one of the two fabulous play-parks.
The Whistlestop Valley Railway is usually open to the public on weekends, Bank Holidays and local school holidays, with special toddler/pre-schooler days on selected Mondays and Fridays, and special events throughout the year. Please check their website for the most up-to-date opening times.
You can reach Whistlestop Valley Railway from Denby Dale & Skelmanthorpe via the D1 bus.
