Quarry Railway Day & Take A Trip On The Rutlander Train
Monday, April 17th
This is your chance to see the action of an authentic ironstone quarry recreated by museum voluteers and our fleet of locomotives. Quarry machines will be in operation simulating the loading of wagons. The wagons will be shunted to form a train, and then the 'full' wagons will be exchanged for a new train of 'empties'. And of course, there will be the ever popular 'runs up the bank' with trains of hopper or tippler wagons being hauled up the 1/60 gradient - see our locos working at their hardest and best!
Also in operation will be The Rutlander Train, providing passenger brake van rides - Pay once and ride all day!
Visitors can also view our fleet of historic ironstone locomotives in the recently opened Simon Layfield Exhibition Centre which now houses the greater part of the museums collection. The Woolsthorpe Workshop is also open for visitors to see progress of ongoing locomotive restoration.
The Sundew Cafe will be open to provide visitors with hot and cold beverages and snacks.
Price: Adult £8, Senior Citizen £7, Child (3-14 years) £5
