The Heritage Lottery works are (almost) finished!  The railway is now in operation again with exciting new buildings and restored cars.

Volk’s Electric Railway normally opens each year shortly before or at Easter and will run until the END of October.

Trains run every 15 minutes after starting, at half past, quarter to, on the hour and quarter past until the last train of the day. A journey from Aquarium Station to Black Rock Station takes about 12 minutes in total. Allow 30 minutes for a return journey.  Service times may vary due to adverse weather conditions or special events.  See www.volksrailway.org.uk for latest updates.
