The characters Chase and Skye from the children’s TV programme Paw Patrol will be visiting the Leighton Buzzed Railway on Sunday 17th July.
Chase and Skye will be visiting Stonehenge Works for one day only, and visitors young and old can take a steam-train ride to meet them at intervals. The train trip takes 80 minutes, including 40 minutes at Stonehenge Works.
As well as meeting Chase and Skye at Stonehenge Works, visitors can explore the Stonehenge Trail, enjoy a children’s play area, and view static engines and wagons.
A sand train replicating how it would have run on the railway from the 1920s to 1970s will be on display, and a steam loco called Penlee where children can climb in the cab and pretend to be the engine driver.
There is also a train from an RAF ammunition depot, a logging train, and displays about sand quarrying and military railways.
