Closure due to Covid-19

We regret that the West Somerset Railway is currently closed due to the Covid-19 virus pandemic. We are fully complying with and following government guidance. At the present time we are not clear when the railway will reopen, but this information will be posted here, as soon as it becomes available.

We are working to maintain the railway, and plan to operate a service as soon as we can. We regret however that for the remainder of this year, 2020, all special events, including galas and dining trains, have been cancelled. (This information supersedes any information about these events elsewhere in this website. In some cases that information is still shown so that you may plan for the future.) No bookings for any of these events are being taken at the present time.

We are very sorry to have had to take these decisions, and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to the West Somerset Railway as soon as we are able to do so.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT US IN THIS VERY DIFFICULT TIME, PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO OUR APPEAL WHICH CAN BE FOUND HERE https://www.west-somerset-railway.co.uk/donations
