Our first-ever Real Ale & Mixed Traction Festival will see The Engine House serving up to 20 Real Ales from Pale Ales to Dark Stouts, and everything in between, from all over the country, alongside a busy service of steam and diesel trains. Get off the train at Highley and join us to relax with a pint of real ale or cider while watching all the action on the rails!

At The Engine House, purchase your refillable commemorative ‘Hagley Hall’ cup for £2 and sample the drinks on offer. Hot and cold food will be available, including a BBQ. Entry to The Engine House is included in the price of your travel ticket – there’s no extra charge!

Our flagship steam locomotive 4930 ‘Hagley Hall’ will be in service, alongside Stanier Mogul 13268 hauling a matching rake of historic LMS carriages. On the diesel front, Class 37 37263 and Class 52 D1062 ‘Western Courier’ each run for 64 miles, as well as the DMU working local services. Plan your day with the timetables: Saturday and Sunday.

‘Freedom of the Line’ tickets can be purchased (see prices below) or Short Journey tickets to get to Highley.

The Engine House will be open from 10am to 6pm (last entry 5.30pm).
