2020 Everything Goes Gala – Cancelled

19th & 20th September 2020

Everything Goes will see a mixture of steam and diesel locomotives running passenger and freight trains all day. This family friendly and very affordable event offers a unique opportunity to see a huge array of engines!

Day tickets will be available and we will try our best to run every working vehicle at the railway on rotation between freight and passenger trains.

Ticket Prices

Day tickets are £8 for adults and £4 for children, we will also have single rides available.

Things to see and do

There will be an intensive service of freight and passenger trains all day and locomotives will be regularly swapped around to give you a chance to have rides and get photographs with all of the engines.

There will also be shed tours, where you can see our fleet of diesel engines and steam engines that are currently being maintained by our team of volunteers.

We open our gates at 08:00 on the morning of each day so you can join us in the yard to see our volunteers lighting up the locomotives and cleaning them in preparation for the day ahead, and sometimes cooking their breakfast on the shovel!

Our fields and new Picnic Area are open for you to explore and capture pictures of the train in our excellent countryside and field railway environments. 

Waterhouses Signal Box will be open for tours, see the ex North Staffordshire Railway signal box from Waterhouses now it has been lovingly restored by our volunteers.
