Lonely Planet review
This short stretch of rail between Lydney and Parkend is plied by six classic steam engines on select days from March to December, as well as a special treat for children – Thomas the Tank Engine – making the occasional guest appearance. The standard ride is 28 minutes long, but there are lots of special events organised by the railway – from Sunday luncheons in 1st-class carriages to ‘drive you own steam engine’ experiences; book in advance.
