Have you ever wondered what it takes to light up, prepare and maintain a steam locomotive?

Behind the scenes at Pichi Richi Railway's Quorn workshops, you can visit a hidden world of historic railway treasures in various stages of restoration.

Tours are available by arrangement and last between 1 and 1.5 hours.

Tour our locomotive and carriage maintenance facilities, view restorations in progress, and see our historic rollingstock collection not normally seen on our trains.

Closed footwear must be worn for safety reasons.
