Great Cockcrow Railway 2019



Important Info Important Changes for 2019

After much deliberation, we have decided to make some changes to our operation, commencing in May 2019. Please make sure you read this information before visiting us.


Opening Times

From 5th May onwards, our Sunday opening time will be 1.00pm, half an hour earlier than previously. The ticket office will close at 4.15pm with the last train departing at 4.30. This is in response to passengers increasingly arriving at the railway earlier than in years gone by. In addition, this change will allow us more time at the end of the day for training new drivers.


2/ Gladesman


With much regret, we have decided to suspend running of our special Gladesman service. For many years it was the highlight of our operation, however, since the introduction of double tickets, these have become so popular that they have effectively taken over the role of the Gladesman.


3/ Bad Weather


It has long been the the case that we would operate the railway in inclement weather. There have always been a few ”diehard” passengers who would turn up regardless of the rain, but it is cold and miserable for everyone especially the drivers, station staff and those who have to get all the equipment out and put it away. We will therefore no longer routinely run trains in heavy or continuous rain. We hope to be able to post notice of this on this website on the day but, if in doubt, please ring 01932 565474 on operating days for the latest information.
