Our New trains timings for 2022
Depart Bitton station at 10:45, 12:00, 13:15, 14:30 & 15:45
UPDATE 23rd April 2022
Engineering works continue on the line between Bitton and Avon Riverside. Unfortunately, like on the main line, these can take longer than anticipated and that’s when you hear the phrase ‘overrunning engineering works’. At the moment, trains are operating between Bitton and Oldland Common. We know that’s a shame, so to add to your visit, we’ll be giving you the chance to get ‘up close and personal’ with our steam locomotive when it’s stationary at Bitton Station. You’ll be able to meet the driver and fireman who are in control and, safety reasons permitting, actually climb onboard into the cab. It’ll be an amazing opportunity to see the workings of a steam locomotive and really discover how our steam engines work.In addition, we’ll also be offering you a discount voucher for a future visit so you can experience the full line once our engineering works are complete.
You will still need to purchase tickets in advance to guarantee your seats and help us manage passenger numbers and social distancing whilst you’re onboard
Bitton Belle, Pines Express and all Dining events * need to be booked in advance as they do sell out fast.
(All events subject to change and cancellation without prior notice, due to unforeseen circumstances)
To keep our customers safe, each family group will be seated in separate compartments. In addition, you’ll see some physical changes next time you visit, from protective screens in our buffet through to hand sanitiser available at various points across the site and enhanced cleaning regimes onboard our trains.
- We thank you for your patience at this time if things take a little longer than normal. We’re all getting used to what’s being called the ‘new normal’ and that includes the railway’s staff and volunteers. However, most importantly we want you to have an enjoyable visit but feel safe too.
