After a year of lockdown, we are provisionally hoping to start running the trains again on the 25th April, however this is subject to change so please check back here before coming. As we expect some restrictions to be still in place by then, we will be ensuring social distancing is maintained while waiting and riding on the trains. We have taken steps to provide screening between family groups on the trains, and carriages will be sanitised between rides. Only one family group will be allowed per carriage and passengers are required to sanitise hands before boarding the train. We look forward to welcoming you back!
We are a group of enthusiastic model engineers who operate a fantastic little railway running round the picnic site at Cinderbarrow, Tarn Lane, near Yealand Redmayne, Lancashire. The railway is open to the public for rides on Sundays and bank holidays throughout the summer, as well as a special event on Halloween (more details below).
Our members range from young to old and while many are highly experienced professional engineers, some are new to the hobby and learning their skills from the more experienced members, while others just enjoy operating the railway and giving pleasure to the many children and members of the public who visit us.
The picnic site at Cinderbarrow is in an attractive setting surrounded by woodland, with lots of open space for picnicing.
Come and join us and enjoy the thrill of riding on a real steam or diesel train and stay for a picnic or a burger from the donut van which is often on site on Sundays (phone ahead to be sure).
We are a charity and we don’t charge for rides, but we depend on donations from the public to keep the railway running.
Most of the engines that we run at Cinderbarrow are owned by individual members who bring them along to haul our miniature trains. The Society also has a powerful diesel model, “Tregoss”, which we regularly use at the site.
Members from other Model Societies are welcome to bring along their engines. (See also Events).
Covid-19: All running is suspended until further notice.
