Isabel and Friends Day

Join us on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th August as we venture into the world of Pauline Hazelwood’s Saddletank books of which our own engine Isabel is a star! 

Isabel will be showing off now that she is even more famous than ever, thanks to her true story being published.

Learn about her origins, how she got her name, and her journey starting in Stafford, and how she came to have a home with us at Amerton Railway. You might even find out about some other engines in the stories!

The author herself will be with us on the Sunday, telling the true stories of Isabel and engines just like her who have been on impressive journeys, as well as signing your copies of the books, so don’t forget to bring them with you! If you haven’t already got a copy, you can buy them on the day.

While with us you can design your own Isabel! What colour do you think she would look good in? Maybe a bright red or a pale blue… how about some spirals? 

Trains run from 11:30 until 16:30, following our Steam timetable and there is no need to book!

Ticket Prices:
Adults: £TBC
Children: £TBC
