Open Days Introduction
All attractions subject to confirmation and availability
Our Autumn Open Days take place 24/25 October 2015.
We will have all of the usual train rides on the museum's demonstration line, turntable demonstrations, and locomotive cavalcades.
You can also take the opportunity to meet and talk with members of the team from Tyseley Locomotive Works & Vintage Trains, and to view current restoration work being undertaken on a wide variety of projects inside our new workshop facility.
The event will also give you an opportunity to catch up with all the latest progress on our major initiative to complete the very comprehensive overhaul of our flagship locomotive 7029 “Clun Castle”, and to return it to the main line.
As the date draws nearer, please check this web site for up to date details of the event, and guest engines.
