2024 Gala Celebrations

Our 2024 Gala Celebrations

Our 2024 gala celebration will be taking place from Saturday 4th May - Monday 6th May, as we welcome 2 visiting engines to Ravenglass!

Our exciting gala weekend will feature 'St Egwin' from The Valley Railway Adventure and the BRAND-NEW locomotive 'Mr Hallworth' from Perrygrove Railway, offering the chance to experience new locomotives. 

Look forward to other activities such as visits to the old British Railways signal box, FREE museum entry, and in the workshop, you’ll find Stuart Harrison with his miniature railway. There's also the chance to 'drive for a donation' on one of our larger engines! 

Additionally, we're excited to launch our new Volunteer Hub in conjunction with the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway Preservation Society. This hub offers prospective volunteers information on available roles and their responsibilities, tours of the workshop and engine shed, as well as taking a ‘Murthwaite Shuttle’ train to Murthwaite Yard for a track laying demonstration (Sat + Sun only).

Once again, we'll be running rover tickets over the weekend, with 1, 2 and 3-day passes available. 

Rover tickets allow unlimited travel on the allocated dates.

Tickets can be booked below.
