Steam Season

Explore the power of steam with our action-packed programme of events, exhibitions and activities from May to September.

Steam Season is up and running at Locomotion, showcasing the power of steam and giving you a chance to immerse yourself in the world of steam-powered propulsion with our riveting steam rides, intriguing exhibitions and more.

Steam Season exploded into life on 5 May with our Festival of Steam, a three-day celebration of magnificent engines in which we welcomed our guest locomotive for the summer and said a fond farewell to Furness Railway No. 20 before it departed for a major overhaul after 10 years of service hauling passenger trains at Locomotion.

Forthcoming events include our crowd-pulling Autumn Steam Gala, which last year featured world-famous locomotive Flying Scotsman alongside BR Standard Class 2MT No. 78018.

Be sure to check back on this page as Steam Season continues; we'll keep it updated with all of the latest information as it is confirmed.
