Ribble Steam Railway & Museum
Attraction in Lancashire
Are you planning to come to Preston, Lancashire in 2018? Why not include a visit to our Steam Railway and Museum. Have a train ride and look around the largest collection of industrial locomotives in the country. Learn more about what was, at one time, the biggest inland dock in England. Also a chance to see behind the scenes and see restoration work underway on both steam and diesel locomotives. During your visit, you’ll have the chance to get ‘hands on’ with several of the exhibits in our spacious indoor museum. Children can climb on the footplate of a steam engine, move the levers and blow the whistle, then climb in the guard’s van and wave the flag. Over in the workshop, you’ll gain a rare ‘behind the scenes’ glimpse of the work in progress by our volunteer workforce. The unique blend of Victorian techniques and modern technology produce some astonishing results! Our ticket prices include unlimited travel on the day of admission, and access to the museum and workshop. When you’ve enjoyed a ride on one of our trains and admired the exhibits in our museum, why not relax with a drink and a snack in our tea room?
