Family Day Out at Appleby Frodingham Railway

Hosted by the North East Area Council

Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire

Saturday 16th July 2022


About This Event

The North East Area Council invites members to our Family Day at the Appleby Frodingham Railway, which is based at Scunthorpe.  The railway operates entirely within the Steelworks limits over tracks normally used for moving molten iron, steel and raw materials. Trains travel up to 15 miles, all within the steelworks.

We will meet at the Appleby Frodingham Railway departure platform at 11.30. Travel by train from Doncaster to Scunthorpe and walk approx 1¼ miles to the railway departure platform. Alternatively, the visitors’ car park is located in British Steel Gate E, Main Approach Rd, Scunthorpe DN16 1TS.

We will be taken on a brake van trip in our own special train round the steelworks, lasting 3 – 3½ hours. We have requested steam traction. During the visit a buffet lunch will be provided in the Appelby Frodingham Railway Shed buffet car.
