3 August 2019

Book Now

Real ale, freshly cooked BBQ food & live music are the order of the day on the Rail Ale Train... Sounds pretty perfect for a summer evening out!

The Kirklees Light Railway's Rail Train will be running on Saturday 3 August 2019. Places are limited and advance booking is essential.

Your evening will start at 7pm as you arrive at Clayton West Station for departure at 7.30pm sharp. Whilst awaiting departure, you'll be treated to a complimentary bottle of our very own KLR beer!

Upon arrival at Shelley Station, the evening's fantastic band will be playing whilst you take in the panoramic views of the valley. You'll have the opportunity to purchase drinks from the wide selection of real ales (and alternatives!) provided by The Nook Brewery and to purchase delicious, freshly-cooked, locally-sourced food from the KLR BBQ.

The bar & BBQ will remain open for the entire evening so you can continue to sample the real ale delights as well as satisfy any further rumbling tummies.

Tickets are priced at £15.95 per person & include a return steam train ride, access to The Nook's bar, the BBQ, live music from a fabulous band and your very own bottle of KLR Ale.

Buy tickets: online, over the phone at 01484 865727 or in person from Clayton West Ticket Office during operating hours.

Each booking transaction will incur a £1.80 booking fee regardless of the method of booking.
