The Railway is pleased to welcome all dogs and their owners onto our trains, subject to their owners ensuring that their dogs do not cause a distraction to the operation of the train or inconvenience and difficulties to fellow passengers. In addition dogs are not allowed onto carriage seats. There is a small charge for dogs who also get their own ticket.                             

All on line tickets must be presented to the Wansford Booking office to be validated.
Blue Peter Badge holders can visit the railway for free
