Sunday 6 September
Baby dinosaurs will take over the Leighton Buzzard Railway at Stonehenge Works for one day only, so come and ride on a steam train to come and meet them.
In addition, we'll be running non-stop, longer trains. This means we'll not be stopping at level crossings.
Please note complimentary and discounted tickets are not available on this day. Only full-fare tickets will be valid, and we recommend booking online in advance to reserve your seat and prevent disappointment on the day.
This day offers a great opportunity for photographers, as well as families. A special timetable will operate with as below.
The train trip takes 80 minutes, including 40 minutes at Stonehenge Works where, as well as the dinosaurs, there is the Stonehenge Trail including a children's play area, along with static engines and wagons. There is also a sand train as it would have run on the railway from the 1920s to 1970s. We have a steam loco called “Penlee” where children can climb in the cab and pretend to be the engine driver. There is also a bomb train from an RAF ammunition depot, and a logging train, as well as displays about sand quarrying and military railways.
The craft shop sells non-railway items and also hot and cold drinks and confectionery. We will also have a guided Engine Shed Show tour at Page’s Park which will include most of our steam locomotives as well as the photographic display of the line and its construction. The Buzzrail café is open with a full menu from 10.00.
