Our first "Star Rails" event was held on Saturday 20th October and Sunday 21st October 2018. The train operations for this were as follows.

  • Our usual train services operated to the normal timetable;
  • Steam trains were operating on each day; and
  • Footplate experiences on one of our diesel locomotives were available.

As well as our train services, the event featured at least the following activities in the Engine House:

  • a "Back to the Future" DeLorean car;
  • a replica landspeeder;
  • stormtroopers; and
  • a model starship display.

Special fares applied for each day, namely £8 for an adult, £3.50p for a child and £20 for a family ticket (covering up to 2 adults and 3 children). The various travel concessions that apply to our normal train services did not apply for this event.

As well as our normal range of refreshments, including hot and cold drinks and sweets, we had a range of sandwiches available on each day.
