The East Lancashire railway has been made aware of roadworks taking place in Summerseat Village from mid-July to mid-September.

The railway really does consider itself part of the local community and would therefore like to lend a helping-hand during the ongoing works by offering heavily discounted Residents Permit rates for those boarding the train at Summerseat Station for the duration of the disruption.

  • Freedom of the Line (unlimited travel) = £9.00
  • Full Line Return Adult = £6.00
