All the engines running during the weekend of Saturday 19 July and Sunday 20 July have their faces painted.

The museum located at the railway has a Prototype Deltic diesel locomotive which was built in the city not far from the railway, and is currently on loan from the National Railway Museum.

Also steaming on the line during the Saturday is the Aspergers Flyer.

The charity train runs at heritage railways throughout the North to promote the National Autistic Society.

The timetable for the weekend sees trains at 11am, 11.45am, 12.30pm, 1.15pm, 2pm, 2.45pm, 3.30pm and 4.15pm.

However the timestable is subject to the swing bridge opening for arriving or departing boats at the Docks.

A day ticket is £6 for adults and children over three are £4.50. It’s free for children under three. Family tickets and concessions are available.

The railway runs from 10.30am to 5pm and free parking is available.
