COVID-19 Opening Information 2022

Amerton Railway is pleased to announce that we will be operating trains in 2022. As with many other attractions we are having to change the way we operate to ensure everyone’s safety when visiting us. 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.

We are doing many other things to ensure we are COVID secure. We disinfect our carriages, and we are closing some compartments on the train to ensure social distancing can be achieved. We have introduced a one-way system around Amerton station and have installed hand sanitising points at both Amerton and Chartley Road stations. Signs around site will clearly show you what you need to do.

We kindly ask that, wherever possible, you wear face coverings while on the train.

We would also ask that payments for the train be made using contactless where possible.

There is no need to book for our normal running days (excluding Santa Specials), just turn up on the day.

When visiting, please observe the following

Wait to Board the Train
