Heritage Diesel Train Ride Through Dean Forest!

Enjoy a relaxing journey along the Dean Forest Railway behind one of our heritage diesel locomotives, available on Saturday 7th November (for weekends in August and September and October and Sundays 1st & 8th November check out our Steam Train Rides, and for Wednesdays our Heritage Diesel Railcar Rides). Looking for something a little extra? Add a takeaway cream tea to your trip when placing your booking, available for pickup from Whistles Cafe before your train ride.

Please note that we have made changes to how we would usually run things – please check out our COVID-19 Statement for full information on what changes we’ve made to ensure compliance.

From Monday 14th September 2020, the new ‘rule of 6’ will be in place.

Mixed households may sit together in one booking but must not exceed 6 people (including all children).

A single household (or support bubble*) may exceed 6 people, but the maximum you can place in one booking is 8 due to the seating layout (note: if you have a household/support bubble* of more than 8, you will need to make two separate bookings, which can then be seated in the same half of a carriage. E.g. if your household is 9 people, you could split this into a booking of 4 and a booking of 5. There is a booking minimum of two, so you would not be able to book it as an 8 and a 1).

As per the government guidelines, you must avoid social interaction with anyone outside the group you are with, even if you see other people you know (note, by group we mean either one household/social bubble* or maximum of 6 from mixed households).

*Definition of a support bubble from the website:

‘A support bubble is a close support network between a household with only one adult in the home (known as a single-adult household) and one other household of any size.

This is called making a ‘support bubble’.

Once you’re in a support bubble, you can think of yourself as being in a single household with people from the other household. It means you can have close contact with that household as if they were members of your own household.

Once you make a support bubble, you should not change who is in your bubble.’
