Road & Rail Festival 2024

Join us on the 14th July 2024

After the resounding success of our Classic Cars & Trains event in previous years, we have decided to give it its own day in July!

Come and visit us for the Road & Rail festival in 2024 at our award-winning railway for one of the most varied event of the year at Amerton Railway. See vintage and unusual vehicles, stationary engines and trains in all forms this weekend.

Passenger and demonstration freight trains hauled by both our locomotives will be running on the day.

Ticket Prices

We are working as quickly as we can to confirm ticket prices for the day, our aim is to make all of our events as affordable as possible for families! We will have day tickets available for the railway, and a small charge to enter the classic car rally field. All proceeds go back into our charity to ensure the continuing preservation of our great heritage! 

All major debit and credit cards will be accepted on both the event field entrance and the railway.

Opening Times – 11am until 5pm

Gates to the event field for guests and the railway open at 11am, though if you wish to join us early, the yard outside the steam engine shed at the railway will be open from 8am to see the steam engines being lit up, simply come through the main Amerton Railway entrance gate and walk down the platform to the end, come and say hello!

The event will be running throughout the day until 5pm on Sunday and will have steam and diesel locomotives in operation on passenger and demonstration freight trains that run on our 1-mile track around the outside of our event field.

Exhibitor Applications – Open NOW!

This year we have changed the aim of our event to make it as welcoming as possible to car and railway enthusiasts with all sorts of interests! 
Many classic car events have strict entry requirements, and we feel that it is important to open up the event to the wider car community.
