NEW Steam Footplate Rides!

We are pleased to announce we have 2 new Steam Footplate Rides available to pre-order now!

Dearne Valley Line (Sheffield - Rotherham - York)
Join us for this unique journey as we ride with an ex-LMS Jubilee Class Steam Locomotive along the Dearne Valley Line in Yorkshire.

Starting from Sheffield, we pass through a series of tunnels and cuttings before turning left away from the junction for the line to Lincoln. We continue north passing through Rotherham and Bolton-upon-Dearne, seeing visible remnants of the railway's past with abandoned stations and sidings tell us a story. After switching to former LNER metals at Ferrybridge, we speed away before running alongside the mainline from Leeds at Church Fenton and running into York.

With live sound recorded from the locomotive, we bring the action right to you. This program also features on-screen locations titles, lineside shots and commentary.

Locomotive Featured: LMS ‘Jubilee’ Class, No. 45690 ‘Leander’.

East Coast Mainline: Volume 2 (York - Darlington - Newcastle)
Join us for this unique journey along the northern section of the East Coast Mainline with one of the world’s fastest class of steam locomotives, the LNER A4 Pacific.

Starting at sunrise from York, we depart in glorious weather conditions, passing the world famous National Railway Museum. As we continue along the racing stretch, we are on the four-track Mainline as a far as Northallerton, where the line converges back to two-track. After briefly passing through the station platforms at Darlington, the spiritual birthplace of Britain’s Railways, we speed away before making a short passenger stop at Durham. After leaving the famous University town, we drop down and cross over the River Tyne into Newcastle.

With live sound recorded from the locomotive, we bring the action right to you.  This program also features commentary, titles & locations.

Locomotive Featured: Ex-LNER A4 No. 60009 ‘Union of South Africa’.

The New Blackpool Tram Shop

The NEW Blackpool Tram Shop is now open!

The new shop is located on the outskirts of Blackpool at Whitehills Business Park, behind the huge B&Q, two minutes from J4 at the end of the M55.

There was an ongoing joke that if four people were in the old shop it was full and this may well have been true! The new unit eliminates all of this and has many benefits which include:

  • FREE customer parking, which we were asked for so many times
  • A huge first floor showroom, 10 times the size of the old shop
  • For the first time we will be able to display ALL of our DVDs and ALL of our books plus many other items - not just a selection
  • The shop is a new-build on a developing complex and on all those winter days of gale force winds and high tides - when we couldn’t open at North Pier - this is very much inland, less windy and drier!
  • We will be now be able to expand further, introduce more books, new tram memorabilia and some other very exciting new products yet to be announced

Shop opening hours are:
Mondays to Fridays: 10am to 5pm
Saturdays: 10am to 4pm
Sundays: Closed
