Attraction Information

  • Railway and Transport Attractions icon Railway and Transport Attractions

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor

The Ribble Steam Railway on Chain Caul Road, Preston, is a family day out in the heart of Lancashire. The railway has been open to the public since September 2005. A visit to the site will not only give you the opportunity to travel along our 1.5 mile dock and riverside line, but also access our newly built museum and workshop.

The line itself crosses the Preston Marina entrance via a swing bridge, and runs alongside the diverted River Ribble on the site of the former sprawling docklands.

Trains leave on the hour from the museum Platform (Preston Riverside) for the 3 mile round trip. Our first train of the day is at 11am and the last at 4pm, total journey time around 35 minutes.

The end of the line is adjacent to Strand Road Crossing where Ribble Rail is connected to the national network. The journey (unless a top-and-tail service is in operation) includes a run-round by the locomotive of the day at Odeon Sidings.

The Ribble Steam Railway is run entirely by volunteers and you can visit the workshops to see our latest projects.

Our museum building is continually being updated and improved to give visitors a truly interactive look into the fascinating industrial railway history of the North West of England and learn about the History of Preston Dock.
