Half Term Horrors

We will be open daily between Saturday 21st October & Sunday 5th November, with lots going on to keep the entire family amused (or spooked, if you prefer) including ghoulish craft activities* and a scary scarecrow trail.

Our friends from Kids Bee Happy Sand Art* will be joining us again from 25th October to 1st November and, on 28th & 29th October, our guest storyteller will be making bones chill with his ghastly tales at Shelley Station.

Train tickets during half term daytimes will cost our usual standard fares but if children visit us in FANCY DRESS during that fortnight, they will pay HALF PRICE on the train!

(*small additional fees are applicable)

¤ The trains that operate during the daytime will not be Halloween themed and are suitable for passengers of all ages. 
¤ The last standard passenger services to Shelley on Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th will be at 3pm from Clayton West. This is to allow for the set up of the Halloween Ghost Train event in the evenings.

Santa Specials 2017

Tickets are now on sale for our magical Santa Special trains!

Bring the whole family down to the KLR in December to enjoy a festive ride to the North Pole (aka Shelley) and back.

You will enjoy mulled wine or soft drinks, warming mince pies and biscuits, you'll have a chance to say "hi" to the hardworking elves and, of course, meet the Big Man himself (yes, it really is HIM!) who will have an amazing gift for every child he meets - so long as they are on his 'nice' list!

The Santa Specials are running throughout December - please see the Special Events page for details of times and days.

Pre-booking is absolutely essential, so book now via, in person at Clayton West Station or over the phone on 01484 865727.
