The West Lancashire Light Railway is a two foot gauge passenger carrying railway located in the village of Hesketh Bank midway between Preston and the resort of Southport.

The line features a number of interesting locomotives and other railway equipment brought together from industrial lines in the immediate locality, from elsewhere in Great Britain and from overseas.

The Railway is a non-profit making organisation and is operated and supported by the West Lancashire Light Railway Trust. Volunteers are always needed to help maintain and develop the Railway as well as operating the trains.

We offer a family-friendly venue for visitors interested in live steam railways and the preservation of our industrial heritage. Many of our visitors are locals who come regularly to ride our trains, whilst on special event days people come from near and far to see our latest attractions. These include visiting engines, freight trains, traction engines, vintage cars and live steam model railways.

If you would like to join the Trust and lend a hand you will be made very welcome.
