Attractions around Preston Dock
A must vist, when at Preston Dock.
Ribble Steam Railway
and Musuem.

The museum houses many locomotives and vehicles that have been restored by our volunteers on site. This is one of the largest collections in the country all under one roof. We have tried to show the different types and tell a short story about the previous lives of each covering where they were built, the industries that they worked in and other interesting facts.

So as you move from our workshop to the museum, here you can get up close and even climb aboard a few to see the size of the footplate that drivers and firemen had to work  on board for many long shifts at work.

Also around the museum you will find other displays, some are permanent such as a History of Preston Dock to temporary displays on many interesting subjects. We are also always adding new displays such as Railway Signalling and Mail in the NW as we have recently acquired a Travelling Post Office carriage.

Many of our displays can easily be added to School Trips as part of the studies.
