Steam Train Ride Through Dean Forest!

Enjoy a relaxing journey along the Dean Forest Railway behind one of our steam locomotives, with unlimited travel throughout the day, and the ability to hop-off and back on at any of our stations.

We recommend starting your journey at Norchard Station (GL15 4ET) unless you are staying within walking distance of one of our other stations, as there is no parking at our other stations (especially in Parkend and Whitecroft, where roadside parking for the local residents is limited already).

Please note that the steam day rover tickets are not available on Wednesdays during July, August or September, or on Wednesdays 13th & 20th April, 1st June and 26th October. On these days only the reserved round trip tickets are available – you can find more information here.


The off-peak timetable runs on available steam days from Saturday 19th March until Sunday 10th April, and from Saturday 8th October until Sunday 6th November (excluding 26th, 29th & 30th October).


The peak timetable runs on available steam days from Wednesday 13th April until Wednesday 5th October, plus Wednesday 26th October. We will also be running to the times of the first three round trips on the 29th & 30th October, followed by a special Halloween train running into the evening (not available as part of the day rover ticket).

Don’t forget to visit our shop, cafe and museum as well, which are open all day at Norchard Station (please note that Whistles Café closes shortly after the last round trip departs).
