More about the Dean Forest Railway
Head to the Dean Forest Railway and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of travel on a rural branch railway operated by steam (and some diesel) train services.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift, or just want to spoil yourself, make sure you stop by the railway’s well-stocked shop at Norchard – you’ll find an impressive selection of Thomas the Tank Engine toys and gifts, as well as railway books and jigsaws.
