Timetable & Fares

We are OPEN on the 1st June and will be running every weekend until 30th June initially
 
First Train runs at 11:00 then every hour on the hour from Alford Station and on the half hour at Haughton Station until last train leaving Alford Station at 16:00 (returning from Haughton Station 16.30).
 
Tickets can be purchased on a first come first served basis – no pre-booking as yet – prices are as below. Single carriage will be running for approx. 35 passengers at a time so arrive in plenty of time to secure a seat!
 
AVCR Ltd relies on volunteers and so July opening will be posted in due course.
 

The railway is currently closed and details of operating days for 2024 will be displayed in the coming months.

Standard travel days are shown in blue, other colours denote special event days. No colour no trains

For the date you would like to travel refer to the colour in the calendar and then click on the corresponding timetable colour below to expand and view details.

Special event days have their own fares and timetables.

As a volunteer organisation we can only operate if we have sufficient volunteers to maintain a safe service.  Please check the Facebook page before you travel for the latest information.

NOTE:  Please be aware that we are now running trains but with limited capacity having only one coach operational.  When buying a return ticket a return seat is only guaranteed if you make an immediate return (if you decide to spend some time in the park, we can’t guarantee a return seat later in the day – we will try obviously but you may have to make your own way back)
