Funeral Train

One last train journey together...

 
The Kirklees Light Railway is proud to offer friends and families the opportunity to take a final train journey together with a loved one aboard a funeral train.
  
The KLR offers a sympathetic and flexible funeral train service on days when the railway is not open to the general public. 

Our staff will work sensitively with the funeral directors and/or family of the deceased to provide only the most fitting send off. 
 
The price of the funeral train service is £300 and this includes liaison with the funeral director and/or family of the deceased to ensure exact requirements are met, space at Clayton West Station for the funeral party to gather and an exclusive return steam-hauled service to Shelley Station. 

The coffin will travel securely atop a black wagon, directly behind the steam engine, with passenger coaches situated behind. 
 
The train ride takes a minimum of 70 minutes but can be lengthened should there be specific requirements or special requests. 
 
Catering services can also be provided at the café in Clayton West Station should the funeral party wish to have some light refreshments or a more substantial offering either before or after their train journey. 
 
If you might be interested in working alongside the railway to provide a funeral train service, please do contact the office on 01484 865727 or info@kirkleeslightrailway.com and one of our friendly team will be happy to assist.
