Colliery Railway in operation

Every Friday

Get an insight into the railway network used by colliery owners. The Colliery Railway, which has standard and narrow gauge lines, hosts demonstration shunting operations by one of the museum’s colliery locomotives.

Under Step 3 of the roadmap, we have reopened many of our indoor exhibits and attractions, and are running our 1950s buses. All visitors will need to pre-book an entry timeslot online in advance of their visit, including Friends of Beamish members and Beamish Unlimited Pass holders. Book your timeslot tickets here.
