The Ribble Steam Railway on Chain Caul Road, Preston, is a family day out in the heart of Lancashire. The railway has been open to the public since September 2005.
A visit to the site will not only give you the opportunity to travel along our 1½ mile dock and riverside line, but also access our newly built museum and workshop.
The line itself crosses the Preston Marina entrance via a swing bridge, and runs alongside the diverted River Ribble on the site of the former sprawling docklands.
The Ribble Steam Railway is run entirely by volunteers and you can visit the workshops to see out latest projects, learn about the History of Preston Dock and follow the Mr Ribble Trail around the museum building whilst learning about Engines & Railways.
Our museum building is continually being updated and improved to give visitors a truly interactive look into the fascinating industrial railway history of the North West of England.
The Gift Shop carries a wide range of merchandise including Ralway Videos, Books and a large selection of souvenirs to please even the youngest of visitors.
Light snacks and refreshments are available in the Cafe.
There is also ample free car parking adjacent to the Railway Centre entrance.
PLEASE NOTE - We have facilities for the disabled on all train rides.
