Ever wanted to meet a dinosaur?

Or, be taught the skills needed to be a Dinosaur Ranger by real-life Jurassic experts?!

Well, now's your chance as the KLR joins forces with their paleontologist pals from Fun Cast Character Company.

What's happening on the day?

On the day of your visit, you will be booked onto a specific train departure time which will transport you from Clayton West Station to Shelley Station where you'll take part in a roarsome Ranger School.

The time you select when making your booking is the time your train departs from Clayton West Station - don't be late or you might end up as T-Rex fodder!

However, you will be welcome to arrive at Clayton West Station to use the facilities from 9.30am, with the facilities closing at 5pm sharp on both days.

All THIS is included in your ticket price:

🦖 Return steam train ride (25 minutes each way)
🦖 A roarsome 20 minute Ranger School + meet & greet with a host of baby dinosaurs
🦖 All day access to the outdoor playgrounds
🦖 Dino-themed trail
🦖 Tram platform rides
🦖 Rides on the Clayton Flyer miniature railway

There will also be two children's fairground rides at Clayton West Station (small additional fees apply).

What are the times & ticket prices?

The event will take place on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th August 2021.

Visitors will book onto a specific train departure time, with trains departing every hour from 10am until the last service at 3pm.

Visitors will spend 40 minutes at Shelley Station before their return train ride, but can spend as long as they like at Clayton West Station before/after their journey.

What are the COVID secure measures?

What are the COVID secure measures?

We're led by UK Government guidance but - at the time of writing - we anticipate the following may need to be adhered to:   


Once purchased, tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable unless the service is cancelled by the railway.  

If a service operates as scheduled but a ticket holder is unable to attend/use their tickets, no refund will be given.

If you find yourself unable to travel due to COVID government restrictions or because of COVID self-isolation, please email us at least 48 hours before your date of travel & we can offer you some options.  

The Kirklees Light Railway will do its best to operate the advertised train services. Should the KLR cancel an advertised train, tickets may be transferred to an alternative train (subject to availability) or a full refund may be given.
