Great Cockcrow Railway 2023

Important Info YOUR SAFETY

Everyone at the Great Cockcrow Railway works really hard to make sure that your visit is as safe and enjoyable as possible. Here are some things that you need to bear in mind to help us achieve that objective.


All children that travel on our trains need to be able to sit in the carriages unaided and support themselves, as required by our insurers. For this reason we unable to carry children under 2 years of age. However, we are aware that even some 2 year-olds and above are not able to meet these criteria. We reserve the right to refuse to carry ANY child who is unable to sit on its own seat without assistance, regardless of age. For the safety of all concerned, our decision is final.


Steam engines, even miniature ones, get extremely hot. They also have a lot of hard edges and corners. When walking past a steam engine, do not touch it or brush against it. Make sure children are not allowed to run on the platforms or approach the engine in case they should trip and fall against it.


When on the train, please remain seated, keep your arms and legs inside the carriage at all times and do not lean out or stand up until the train has come to a complete stop at the end of your ride. Do not try and get off the train during your ride, even if the train is stopped at a signal, unless instructed to do so by a member of staff.


Special arrangements for photographers can occasionally be made. Whilst photography from stations and trains is fine, walking around the track is strictly prohibited. If you do take photos whilst the train is in motion, please do not stand up or lean out or hold your camera out at arm’s length. STRICTLY NO SELFIE STICKS.


Please obey all warning signs and follow all instructions given to you by members of staff.


Dogs are not allowed in the Station area and are NOT permitted to ride on the trains. Please do not allow them to run loose in the car park or lower field and remember to clear up any “donations.”

We trust that, with your co-operation, accidents can be avoided.
