Steam Train rides at Sheffield Steam and Heritage Society

2nd Jun 2024

The Redwater Creek Steam and Heritage Society offer a heritage rail experience through the regular operation of a century-old Krauss locomotive. The train leaves each half-hour from the restored Sheffield railway station from 11 am to 4 pm on the first full weekend of each month. The Railway Coffee Shop is open while the train is running, with a nice coffee and hot chocolate. Come on in and try them!

The Railway began as a community building enterprise in 1993 and is well regarded for the restoration and preservation of steam-era machinery and local history. The steam museum onsite houses a comprehensive member’s collection of working steam engines which can be viewed on running days.

The Railton-Roland line opened in 1914, offering daily passenger and twice-weekly goods services until 1957. The Sheffield Steam and Heritage Centre Railway retains this heritage in an authentic environment.

A Miniature train and a number of different model gauge trains are also open on these running weekends.
