Fares for specials

Specials are events such as Santa Specials, Fish & Chips, Pie & Pint, the Ghost Train. Tickets for these, and any other trains which are additional to our scheduled services, are all treated as returns. Scheduled service discounts do not apply.
One ticket is therefore all that is needed for the outward and return journey, to join these Specials.
Please note that where an event occurs within our normal scheduled services such as 1940s, the Teddy Bears or the Whisky Festivals, single tickets are still needed. 
Fares are specific to each event. Please check under Events & Specials for details.

Please Note: Would anyone booking meals who has any special dietary requirements please contact the Sidings Café beforehand on 01340 525125
