Christmas Train Rides



Dates: Sundays 27th November; 4th & 11th December

Visit the picturesque seaside town of Whitehead to experience the magic of steam. On the historic 1907 platform at Whitehead Excursion Station you’ll board our train for a trip within our premises.

Hauled by our vintage steam engine and sitting in a 1960s carriage you will be transported to a bygone era. Afterwards, you will be able to see at close hand how the magnificent steam locomotive works.

There is also an additional option to enjoy a visit to our Platform 3 Cafe, or explore Whitehead Railway Museum (bookable separately) and discover the secrets of the RPSI's 100-year-old Midland Railway buildings, together with the more recent additions.
