Chain Caul Road

A visit to the Ribble Steam Railway will not only give you the opportunity to travel along the one-and-a half-mile dock and riverside line, but also access our extensive museum and workshop. On site we have over 40 industrial locomotives, including Deltic Prototype currently on loan from The National Railway Museum. Our family orientated museum will appeal to both young and old as well as the enthusiast. In the workshop, you can glimpse work in progress by our volunteer workforce who are dedicated and passionate about Lancashires Industrial Heritage, come along and see what they have achieved, learn about our past and Prestons contribution to the British Industrial Railway network.
