2017 Calendar and Timetables

See the calendar below for the days when trains run in 2017 and the colour codes for the timetables. Every running day there will be an opportunity for visitors to experience at least two different forms of rail transport. By buying a "rover" ticket, you will have the freedom of the line for the full day.

Click here for a printable copy of our 2017 Timetable and Events brochure.

Note 1: The printed version shows our northern terminus as Laverton whereas the timetables below show Buckland to where the line was extended in May 2017.

Note 2: The printed version does not show Hayles Abbey Halt which was opened in June 2017.
