Amerton Railway

Welcome to Amerton Railway

Coronavirus Information

Given the current situation with regard to Coronavirus, and the Governments guidance, we have made the difficult decision not to start our running season as planned on the 4th April. We will keep all our customers updated on decisions about future events and when we will re-open via our Facebook Page and here, on our website.

As we are sure you are aware, Amerton Railway is a charity run entirely by volunteers. Not having paid staff puts us in a better position than many small businesses. However we still have bills to pay, and not running trains means we will lose our main source of income. If you’re in a position to be able to support us through this period we would welcome any donations.

Finally we would like to wish all our past and future customers well in these uncertain times. Please do take care of yourselves and those around you. We look forward to seeing everyone later in the year for train rides in the sun!

Special Events

More information on our special events can be found here.

Our new Picnic Area is now open

Our very popular Picnic Area was opened in 2019, so why not bring a picnic lunch and have a ride on the train to the Picnic Area at Chartley Halt where you can watch the trains go by. For more information please see our Picnic Area page.

Special Bookings

We are able to accommodate schools, groups, societies, companies and clubs at our railway for behind the scenes access, hands-on experience or private bookings. Please see our Contact Us page for more information on getting in touch.
