On Train

On the Trains

All our trains feature on-board catering. Many services feature our first-class buffet car that serves a range of hot and cold beverages and snacks for your journey. Many of our coaches have enhanced facilities and space for prams, pushchairs and baby buggies, all in the seating areas where parents can keep a watchful eye, as well as wide doors to facilitate boarding.


Ruddington (main station area)

Our main site at Ruddington is the base for the railway's operations and is our principle station. There is a cafeteria (selling hot and cold food, drinks, etc), Toilets, Baby Change facilities, a gift shop, the narrow-gauge line operated by the Nottingham Society of Model and Experimental Engineers (NSMEE) and a collection of historic buses as well as a building hosting three model railway layouts.

The main platform is located alongside the Rushcliffe Country Park in Mere Way, Ruddington. Car parking is plentiful. A cool satellite view of the site is here. A printable, simple to use map of our Ruddington station site and it's facilities is shown above (Click on Image for full size)
