Whitwell And Reepham Station

Whitwell And Reepham Station A Heritage Railway with Steam and Diesel engines. The Sidings Bar can provide a full lunch menu, pizzas, BBQ or snacks everyday. A Museum is also on site.

Our continuing aims are to restore the Station to its former glory circa 1930/40's, relaying track and sidings, acquiring rolling stock and add more items to our museum relating to the Station and The Midland & Great Northern Railway. Our Sidings Bar and Function Room is available for a quick bite to eat, or maybe you would like to have a lunchtime meal.

We have been informed that the road closed signs have been put back out. We have also been informed that they SHOUlD be going for around 4-4.30 tonight. However if anyone is planning to visit us tonight or tomorrow it may be worth coming through reepham as the road closure is around the black water farm area. Which means you can still get to us from reepham if you ignore the road closure signs! ๐Ÿ˜€

06/10/2021

If you are heading to us via reepham we are still open the road closure is after us so donโ€™t let the road closure signs worry you, you can still get through to us!

Happy weekend everyone!!

This weekend is the last weekend before kids around our area are back to school!! How has the 6 weeks gone by already!!

This Saturday 4th we have a wedding happening in our station building meaning no hot drinks ice creams or slushies for around an hour to hour and a half between roughly 1.30-2.30/3pm

On Sunday we are in steam as itโ€™s the first Sunday of the month! It also means we have our driver experiences back so our train rides for visitors will start slightly later at 12.30pm.
We have breakfast from 9-10 followed by roast lunches from 12.30-2.30. Our other menu is available too.

We would like to thank all our visitors over the summer holidays and hope all the children have a great new start at school on the 6th.

We would also like to thank all of our staff new and old for all their support and hard work they have put in over the summer too. Youโ€™ve done us proud!

From Monday 6th we will continue our opening times from 10-6 during the week with slightly later closing time on Friday! Our weekend times will stay the same too if 10-6
