Join us for a celebration of steam power in our star-studded conclusion of Steam Season, this year featuring 70013 Oliver Cromwell.

One of our biggest events of the year, the Autumn Steam Gala features guest steam locomotives for a moving celebration of steam power. Last year's event included Flying Scotsman, and this year we've lined up Oliver Cromwell.

Climb onto a cab of a locomotive in light steam and step back in time as you feel the heat, hear the sounds and take in the smells. Then enjoy the sensations of steam power with a steam train ride on the museum’s railway, or hop onto the miniature railway for a scaled-down experience. 

We'll have a range of displays and information stands by community and heritage railway groups, as well as a hands-on activity providing fun for all the family.
