About the Railway
The Evesham Vale Light Railway runs daily during school holidays and every weekend throughout the year. Click here for operating dates.
Trains are usually steam hauled and travel for over a mile past the old apple orchards and around the country park, stopping briefly at Evesham Vale Station. Here you can take a break from your journey to have a picnic, visit the playfort, walk to the river Avon or just enjoy the views overlooking some of the most picturesque scenery the Vale of Evesham has to offer.
