Information to note:

  • Rover tickets give passengers the flexibility to hop on and off at any station and enjoy all the railway has to offer for an entire day.
  • We recommend buying your Rover ticket in advance, although we do have walk-in tickets available on the day to purchase at our stations or on board our trains from our Travelling Ticket Inspectors.
  • Please remember to bring your ticket/E-ticket on the day (your E-ticket does not need to be printed as it can be shown on your smartphone).
  • Dogs are welcome on our trains, except on food services, and travel free of charge.
  • Passengers who use a wheelchair can access the train via the Guard's Van or our Accessibility Coach.
  • Shorter interstation fares are available on the day - you can purchase these at Wansford and Overton Stations or on the train from our Travelling Ticket Inspectors.
  • The gift shop is open every running day.
  • Contactless payment is preferred in all areas of our railway.
  • If you are using a Members Only or Campsite Discount Code at the time of purchase, please ensure that, on the day of travel, you bring the required evidence of the code applied. If you do not have the evidence with you when your ticket is checked, you will be asked to pay the balance of the full amount.

Booking information

Please ensure you bring your tickets either on your smartphone or printed off to present on arrival at our Stations or to a Travelling Ticket Inspector on the train.

All children are to be accompanied by a paying adult.

If you would prefer a shorter trip, we offer single and return tickets which can be purchased on the day at Wansford or Overton Stations or on the train from our Travelling Ticket Inspectors.

When Thomas is running, a Rover ticket will cover the full line including the Thomas shuttles. If you only wish to travel on Thomas, you can buy just a Thomas shuttle ticket.
