We have a number of event days throughout the year when we operate a variety of classic steam locomotives and vintage diesels, so you can experience the sights, smells and the noise of an authentic steam railway in a period setting.

Visitors are able to enjoy unlimited rides our heritage trains and miniature railway, all included in the admission cost, making it perfect for a family day out.

You can also view our restored locomotives, explore the numerous railways carriages and sometimes even have a go at driving a diesel locomotive.  There are often other things going on too – check our events list for details.


Aside from the wonderful food in our Chappel Station Cafe, our caterers provide additional catering for events such as delicious BBQs or hog roasts.


Open on events days, The Viaduct is our small but charming on-site pub.  Sponsored by the Colchester Brewery, based right here in Wakes Colne, we serve a selection of their classic bottled ales, as well as an assortment of other soft drinks and beverages.
