From Our Editors

Dean Forest Railway steams through the Gloucestershire countryside on a track that has slowly been extended. Passengers travel between Norchard, Lydney Junction and Parkend, with plenty of opportunities to alight for leisurely lunches in local real ale pubs or browse the souvenir shop and museum. The railway gives individuals of all ages the chance to explore the region in old-fashioned style and acts as an ideal starting point for forest hikes and idyllic picnics.

An enjoyable day with my dad. Nice to do something different. Love the sound and smells of the steam train and interesting to see the engine change ends at Parkend to go back the other way. The only thing on our day was there was a 20 delay in setting off from the first stop, not sure why, which put all times on the timetable at each station out...so hard to catch up and make time up when there is so much involved in driving the train, but apart from that would highly recommend for all ages.

Take a packed lunch with you. You can sit on the train as long as you like. Or get off at each station and go for walk around. There is a nice big park at lydney town for children. My 2 granddaughters (9 & 6) had a really good time and said they would go again.

Had a fantastic family day out stopping at all the stops other than one. I had my mobility scooter, the railway staff couldn't of been more helpful putting the ramp up and down and helping me on and off the train. We had lunch at the main station and would highly recommend the food. All in all would highly recommend Dean Forest Railway ☺
