Summer 2024

throughout the  summer  months we  offer railtours around the internal railway system of  British Steel at Scunthorpe .This  100  mile  rail system is  one of the  largest industrial railway systems in the  county.

Passengers are  carried in brake vans where the  best  views are obtained  from the  open verandas

For 2024 we re  offering  both steam and diesel  hauled  trains,. these  tours last  for around 4 hours and include a  visit to our  loco shed where we stop for refreshments and offer an opportunity to see work in hand at our loco shed
