Please follow our Facebook page for further updates, and read all of the below information before your visit.
These dates are however subject to the weather (as always), the availability of volunteers and we also reserve the right to suspend or amend operations if the government reintroduces any Covid-19 regulations or advice.
The railway will be open from 12.00hrs until 17.00hrs with the exception of October 30th 2022 when the railway will close at 16.00hrs. We may have to close the queue a little earlier to avoid any disappointments if many people are waiting.
* What’s different this year?
We need to avoid overcrowding within the railway site so that we can all have a happy and safe afternoon.
Anyone showing or experiencing any of the symptoms of Covid-19 MUST NOT come to the site or ride the railway.
A one-way route into and out of the site, and to and from the trains, will be in operation. Please queue outside the ticket office, and along the boundary fence of the railway enclosure.
Tickets will cost £1.50 each, or 5 for £6.50. Multiple tickets may be purchased, cash and cards are accepted.
We are running trains on both our railways: On the raised track railway there is usually only space for one household per train and on the ground level one household per carriage will be the norm. Railway volunteers will give guidance on which carriages can be used in order to avoid overcrowding.
Railway volunteers will also wipe down the carriages periodically throughout the day.
* What about parking?
Please remember that parking at Ashton Court is controlled by Bristol City Council, and visitors will need to pay and display. Only members of the Bristol Society of Model & Experimental Engineers are permitted to park their vehicles in the area immediately adjacent to the railway.
