West Lancashire Light Railway opens its new season with a Friendly Engines Day on Sunday April 6.
An annual treat for families with young children, steam trains will be running from 11.30 am to 4.30 pm.
Everyone knows the famous Thomas, now here is a chance to meet some other engines with faces which are just as friendly.
Tickets (adult £4, children £3, under 3 free, senior £3.50) are valid all day, with as many rides as you like:
Also at 12.30 a presentation will be made to Henry Brown, aged six, winner of the ‘Great Railway Treasure Hunt’ organised nationwide by Peter’s Railway books.
Henry’s prize is a family season ticket on the West Lancashire Light Railway for the 2014 season.
The Easter weekend, meanwhile, will be a rail extravaganza, with fun from 11.30am to 4.30pm on Good Friday April 18, Easter Sunday April 20, and Easter Monday April 21.
