Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway
The Embsay & Bolton Abbey Railway is a four mile stretch of preserved railway, located a few minutes outside Skipton, and the home of a major collection of British transport history.
Our sites, including two period stations and one country halt, host a wide range of locomotives, carriages and wagons that present railway heritage from the 1880s to the 1960s to the public through a wide range of open days.
We are particularly proud of our sector-leading restorations of carriages. Vehicles based with us have been restored to working order over many years, displaying the amazing craftsmanship of our volunteers, and telling brilliant stories. Included is the London & South Western Railway's 1887 Royal Saloon for Queen Victoria.
We're always open to welcoming groups, clubs and societies with their own historic vehicles, too. Perhaps we can discuss hosting a classic car or commercial vehicle meet or host a stop-off in a beautiful drive of Yorkshire's scenic Dales. To discuss with us, please first email email@example.com
