Our resident teddies, looking forward to the Teddy Bears' picnic in July!
On Mothering Sunday we give every mother (and grandmother) a little gift.
The Easter Egg Hunt is always very popular. Each child spotting the hidden "eggs" receives a chocolate bunny.
At the annual Steam Gala Weekend in May, all of our locomotives will be in steam. It's a great opportunity to have a ride behind your favourite loco and take some very atmospheric photographs.
On Fathers' Day we enter all fathers and grandfathers into a prize draw, details of the prize nearer the time!
The Teddy Bears' Picnics reveal all the railway's resident teddy bears having fun and we invite families with their picnics to come and join them. Other attractions include swing boats, model railways, facepainting will all be here for all to enjoy.
The Visiting Locos Gala will see friends from local railways bringing their locomotives to SDLR for the weekend to celebrate the end of our running season. Another great opportunity for some photos, maybe even of some double-headed trains!
This special train runs at 12 noon and 3 p.m. on the first Sunday of every month. It travels over the whole of the railway giving a ride almost double the usual one. Premium fares of £3 for adults and £1.50 for children apply. The picture shows the special headboard made by member Jerry Chivers.
