30 Years to Rawtenstall Anniversary - Bury to Rawtenstall Return
The Grand Reopening 1 – 3 May
We’re getting back on track!
This May Bank Holiday is a special one for the East Lancashire Railway. Not only will we opening our lines for the first time after the third national lockdown, we will also be celebrating an auspicious date. 2021 marks the thirty year anniversary of the re-opening of Rawtenstall Station on 27 April 1991!
Come along and join the festivities as we run regular steam and diesel services throughout the weekend. A limited number of these tickets are available at the same price they were in 1991, providing a significant discount.
Tickets and Prices
30 tickets are available per outward train from Bury/Rawtenstall. Passengers must return on train indicated. Advance booking only these prices will not be available on the day.
To keep our customers safe, each family group will be seated in separate compartments. Please select a carriage and then click on an available compartment. Choose your first seat and you'll then notice that all the remaining seats in that compartment become highlighted, so that no one else can book them.
Then, just choose the different tickets you need for each of your group from the drop down lists. For any spare seats simply choose the option 'seat not required'
Please note that we operate our heritage diesel trains on Saturdays and Steam on Sundays.
“The Hypnotist: Red Raw” is a brand new show where volunteers from the audience unlock their imaginations and create a once-in-a-lifetime show of improvised comedy under the influence of hypnosis - live on stage.
Robert Temple is back on tour after a phenomenal 23-day run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019, with this all new show featuring brand new sketches that’ll have you howling for days.

It’s the perfect night out whether you watch from the audience or you choose to participate as a star of the show, this is a night out not to be missed.
