Queen Mary Brake Van Rides

15th Sep 2024

Explore our railway from the perspective of our restored “Queen Mary” brake van which will be hauled by one of our resident diesel shunters. The trip will be over the full length of the line towards Chilcompton.

Rides will take place every 30 minutes from 10:30 am - the return trip takes approximately 20 minutes. Each trip starts and finishes in the station at Midsomer Norton. There are 3 ticket options - £5.00 for adults; £2.50 for children aged 4-16. Children aged 3 or under travel free. Tickets can be purchased online through this website or from the station shop on the day.

Please note that the brake van consists of 2 covered “verandas” (one at either end of the vehicle) both of which can accommodate up to 6 people – ie 12 in total per trip so your booking must not exceed this number. Please also note that due to its size and restricted access there is no wheelchair access to the brake van.
