Amerton Railway

Welcome to Amerton Railway

Coronavirus Information

Amerton Railway is pleased to announce that we will be resuming services from Saturday 1st August. As with many other attractions we are having to change the way we operate to ensure everyone’s safety when visiting us. This will mean that we will be running at weekends only and our Museum will be closed. Also, at least initially, we will be running a Diesel only service. We are preparing our steam locos, and hopefully we will be able to start Steam services later in August. The good news is that our Picnic Area will be open, so you will be able to enjoy a ride on the railway and stop off to enjoy the countryside. For more information please click here.

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!

Our Picnic Area is 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.

Please keep in touch with us through our website and Facebook page for more details of our steam and diesel train services and special events or sign up to our Mailing List.

We are a registered charity, registration number 1015635. Amerton Railway is dedicated to preserving our narrow gauge railway heritage and is operated entirely by volunteers. We are not associated with our neighbours, Amerton Farm.

Our engines are heritage vehicles and are all operated by volunteers. As such, all events, services & locomotives are subject to availability. We will endeavour to update our website and Facebook Page should circumstances change.
