Welcome to the Coalfield Line.
Our aim is to provide you with an enjoyable and memorable steam railway experience.
Our line is of National importance, linking, as it does, the historic workshops and 18th century Newcomen beam engine at Elsecar, and the Cortonwood Colliery site where the year long Miners' strike began back in 1984.
We are currently developing our Coalfield Line Schools Partnerships to ensure our Heritage survives.
You can also enjoy fantastic events such as the May Beer Festival, or perhaps share wine, beer, and mince pies with Santa on one of our Santa Steam Specials.
