Steam in Lights


Steam in Lights is back by popular demand! Following a sell-out in 2019, sparkle, glow and shimmer on a magical steam train covered by thousands of lights!


The ultimate Christmas experience for all ages, make Steam in Lights your family tradition...

The magic begins the moment you arrive at Bridgnorth; cameras at the ready as your train steams into the station, adorned with thousands of colourful lights.

Once aboard, sit back and relax and let the magic unfold in your own private compartment as the festive music begins to play and the story begins. Keep your eyes peeled for amazing displays of magical creatures, mystical auroras and snow flurries - only seen from the train!

For those who believe in magic, look out for the mystical Cacklers hiding along the way and keep your fingers crossed for a flurry of snow.

Departures available at 4.30pm, 6.30pm, 8.30pm.

What's new this year:
  • Watch the train steam into the Station before you board.
  • Travel in private compartments for the whole journey.
  • Bigger and brighter displays from the window.
  • Speakers in every compartment.
  • Improved photo opportunities.
Important information:
  • You will need to arrive at Bridgnorth Station 45 minutes before departure.

  • Buggies and pushchairs cannot be accommodated on the train, but will be stored securely at the Station on request.
