Derwent Valley Light Railway
The railway in its current form began in 1989, with the arrival of the Great Yorkshire Preservation Society, formerly based at Starbeck, near Harrogate. The society was looking for a new home as they had been asked to vacate their site on the old locomotive sheds at Starbeck due to redevelopment of the site for housing, and the relocation of the nearby Octavius Atckinson steelworks. In 1990, the society joined forces with a group of volunteers previously involved with the Hull Locomotive Preservation Society, from Dairycoats in Hull.The railway has then gone from strength to strength.
Our railway currently operates passenger trains throughout the Summer, from Easter until September on S Sundays and Bank Holidays, in addition to our very popular Santa Special trains in December, where we team up with the farming museum and Viking village to create a Christmas experience second to none
Train services operate every Sunday and Bank Holiday from Easter to the end of September, see below for dates.
There is no charge for passengers on our trains, as we operate in partnership with the Murton Park. Once entry into the museum has been paid, train rides are free. Entry costs to the museum are as follows;
ADULT : £4.50
CHILDREN : £2.50 (under 3's are free)
FAMILY: £12.00 ( two adults and up to four children)
