Join us for a trip onboard one of our steam or diesel-hauled trains in 2022. We generally run diesel on Saturdays and Steam on Sundays plus any midweek days.
Your journey lasts fifty minutes and you’ll travel both ways from Bitton Station. First you’ll head north to our station at Oldland Common. Next you’ll travel back south onto the more scenic part of your journey to our station at Avon Riverside before returning to Bitton. At either end of the line you’re welcome to disembark and watch the locomotive running round to the other end of the train.
Whilst we are no longer required to maintain social distancing we’re still choosing to seat individual family groups in separate compartments or table areas. To book your seats all you need to do is select a carriage and then click on an available compartment or table area. 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’.
