Members tours

We run monthly tours for ELRPS members to see inside a working signal box, see heritage carriages being restored, get up close to steam and diesel locomotives as well as finding out more about the exciting opportunities to work on the railway.


Tours for Full Members (18+) are held each month except December, with a capacity of 8 members per tour.  Tours start at 10:45am at Bolton Street Station.  You will need to be in possession of your membership card and be capable of walking unaided. Please wear suitable shoes or boots (no trainers). The tours take around 5 hours so you would be well advised to bring a packed lunch.

To book your place on a tour you will need to be a website member in order to visit the bookings page here.
