2018 Season begins!
We hope our customers have survived the winter and the Beast From the East...!
Once again, we will be having plenty of special events throughout the year at the railway! Be sure to keep an eye out for upcoming events on our website and our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/heatherslawrailway).
We are happy to announce that we have a brand new fancy website design! We will continue to post regular updates as our season progresses. Enjoy!
There are special rates available for party bookings. Bookings must be made in advance - max capacity 90 adults. For any enquiries please call our ticket office on 01890 820244 or our general office on 01890 820317 (9am-5pm).
New Plans 2018
During the running season, we will continue to upgrade our older carriages with new bearings, wheel sets and bodywork, matching the blue livery of our main stock.
Those following our facebook page will have noticed our continuous (and tiresome!) process of relaying track onto fresh ballast and new sleepers. This past winter we have laid down over 400m of brand new track! It's so smooth!
Other plans this year include renovating our main engine shed, re-paneling our maintenance engine 'Clive' and updating our model railway room with newer material and a history section.
In The Area
Ford and Etal estates are happy to announce that Etal Pub will be re-opening this spring/early summer. The new management team have been busy refurbishing the interior over the winter months and it's looking like it will be a welcome return to Etal village. We can also confirm that the Heatherslaw tearooms will also be open and under new management! Be sure to follow Ford And Etal Estates on Facebook for more information:
We are looking forward to welcoming you all back to HLR on the 25th March!
