West Lancashire Light Railway

We will be supporting the WLR’s gala weekend on Saturday / Sunday, August 12/13. Each day one of our buses will provide free rides from the railway at Hesketh Bank around the local area. The plan is to use TD5 2057 one day and PD3 1775 the other day. The service will run from about 11.00 to 16.00.

Plenty of steam locos to enjoy at the gala weekend

2057 is scheduled to operate one of the days

Lytham Hall

Our next major event will be at Lytham Hall on Bank Holiday Monday, August 28th. The day will follow a similar pattern to last year. There will be a display of Ribble and other buses in the grounds close to the Hall and a free bus service will operate between the Hall, Lytham, Fairhaven Lake and St Anne’s Square. The first bus will depart from St. Anne’s Square at 09.35, the last at 16.35. The service will operate every 10 minutes throughout the day.

Only disabled parking is available at the Hall so visitors with cars should park in the car park of Ribble House, the former Axa building, or the adjacent public car park on Ballam Road. Our buses will take passengers from the car park to the Hall.  Please note that these vintage buses are not equipped to carry wheelchairs and access can be difficult to anyone with impaired movement. However, our conductors will provide assistance as required. Buggies can only be carried if folded. We look forward to welcoming everyone on the day.
