Santa with train

We are now taking advance bookings for our Santa Special trains - Click here for more details.

You can book online for trains where seats are still available.

Yes, on any day when the railway is open and operating trains, but provided that neither you nor anyone who would be visiting with you is experiencing any symptoms of CoViD-19 infection.

For details of our operating days please follow this link.

The safety of our volunteers and visitors is our top priority, and in particular two measures are still in place.

  • There are sanitising stations at entry points and other strategic locations; and
  • there are till screens at the Moor Road station.

We strongly ask that you please do not visit the railway if you are experiencing any symptoms that might be Covid-19.

Yes, the shop and café at Moor Road are open on any day when trains are running.

Yes, the toilets at Moor Road are open on any day when trains are running.

Please note that there are no toilets on the train or at Park Halt. We believe that the toilets in the Middleton Park Visitor Centre may be open, but we are not certain.

For special services, such as our Santa trains, the information in other pages here will make it clear if advance booking is either available or required.

Yes, we are dog friendly at the Middleton Railway and they travel free of charge. We kindly ask that your dog stays on a lead at all times and does not sit on the carriage seats.

The only exception to this is the Santa Special trains, where we can only accommodate assistance dogs.

Yes, certainly – particularly if you are going to get off the train at Middleton Park, where there are plenty of good picnic spots. We kindly ask that you either dispose of your rubbish in one of our bins, or take it home with you, to help us maintain cleanliness around the railway.
