Summer steam

The East Lancashire Railway is celebrating summer the only way we know how, with a packed programme of family friendly events. Go on adventure with your favourite fairy tale princesses or take to the high seas with Captain Kidd and his crew of pesky pirates, take a ride with Thomas the Tank Engine or unlock the secrets of magic at the Grand Old School of Wizardry, these are just a few of the enchanting entertainments on offer.
