    Just a bit of a plug for the above event - 5526 arrives this week!

    Also hopefully something that may be of interest to some...
    There is also an opportunity to drive 5526 on the 13th & 18th March, for the bargain price of £150. Please check the EARM website for more details (www.earm.co.uk/railex).

    Yes there is - if you email locomotives@earm.co.uk a WTT will happily be sent across to you - same applies to anyone else that would like one.

    Although from what I've been told it'll be a passenger set of Mk1s, the vintage coaches, a rideable freight train along with some shunting demonstrations. Also for Saturday only, we will run an extended timetable taking us into the hours of darkness with the Small Prairie 5526.

    I'm firing Jubilee on the Saturday and 5526 on Sunday - hope to see some people from here there!

    Gala held just in time.
    Current EARM Update: The board of trustees have taken the difficult decision to close the museum to members of the public until further notice due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We are reviewing government advice regularly and hope to be able to welcome you again in the future.
