Whitehead Railway Museum



This winter event in Whitehead takes the form of a street fair, and we will be joining in the fun, running steam train rides with a Christmas theme. Children will receive a small seasonal goody bag.

From our 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.

This is an experience like none other provided on the island of Ireland. Your day will certainly be one that you will not forget!

If you come in period costume it will add to the fun of the day!

Train rides will be running 11am to 3:20pm, every 20 minutes.

Suitable for children (and adults) of all ages!

All Tickets: £7
