Birmingham Railway Museum Trust
In 1999 Birmingham Railway Museum Trust achieved its long held objective of running a regular steam train service on the national mainline railway network between Birmingham and Stratford-upon-Avon. Tyseley Locomotive Works is the engineering subsidiary of the Trust. Locomotives and other rolling stock are restored, maintained and serviced on the site of the former Great Western locomotive depot & works at Tyseley. The Museum & Depot site is now known as Tyseley Locomotive Works Visitor Centre and it is the home base for Vintage Trains and, of course, the Shakespeare Express. Vintage Trains is the main line operating subsidiary. Vintage Trains uses engines from the Tyseley collection plus guest locomotives to haul steam excursions and heritage diesel trains on the national mainline railway network to places of interest. This makes an excellent day out for both families and railway enthusiasts.
The Lavender Line
Preserved Railway. Our line is now just a mile long and starts at Isfield station. It heads northwards towards Little Horsted where the train pauses before returning to Isfield. There is no station at Little Horsted and train rides normally last about 15 minutes per trip with trains leaving every half hour. The village of Isfield lies off the A26, midway between Lewes and Uckfield.
We have reopened a section of the former Ruabon to Barmouth route in North Wales that was closed in the 1960s. Our heritage trains now operate at weekends for most of the year, and all week from April to October. During the summer, most trains are steam-hauled; at other times diesel locomotives or railcars may be used. The route runs from Carrog to Llangollen.
DCDR - Downpatrick & County Down Railway
The railway is Northern Ireland's only standard gauge (i.e. full size) heritage railway and is based in the county town of Down. The railway was founded in 1985 with the intention of rebuilding the entire former Belfast and County Down Railway branch line to Ardglass. However, it soon became apparent that this was an unrealistic goal and instead the railway was or is being rebuilt to Inch Abbey and Ballydugan - both of which are on the former BCDR Belfast to Newcastle main line.
