number of special events are arranged each year at Moors Valley
Railway. Obviously the summer months provide the busiest time of
the year but fine winter weekends also see a good turn out by the
busiest and most hectic weekends of the year are in December when
the Santa Special events are held. Most of the engines are in
steam, the staff dress in Victorian costume and a very merry time
is had by everyone including Father Christmas!
Sundays only throughout the year a special train, the “Midday
at noon precisely.
This in effect means a two mile non-stop run (signals permitting)
twice around the circuit, once in each direction.
engine days are our way of using the smaller engines in our
fleet, which run short trains but more often and the railway is
usually run ‘the wrong way round’ for example we will
depart from the main station out the rear. This certainly keeps
the signal boxes busy!
