Swanage Railway Autumn Steam Gala 2016


During the Steam Gala an intensive timetable of both passenger and freight trains will be operated – giving visitors the opportunity to ride behind as many of the engines as possible, as well as giving great photo opportunities.

Some trains will be operating “over the road” to the River Frome Bridge – the current limit of our operations and a taste of next years trial service to Wareham.

We will also be operating our renowned Wessex Belle “Bistro” Dining Train on both Friday 14th and Saturday 15th October evenings. (Bookings close Wed 12th October 16:00) Very Limited Availability. http://www.swanagerailway.co.uk/the-friday-night-bistro
