Wensleydale Railway’s popular fish and chips trains, known as the ‘Wensleydale Fryer’, are back this year, with new dates. Experience a scenic journey through the Yorkshire Dales whilst enjoying locally supplied Fish and Chips, mushy peas, bread and butter and unlimited tea or coffee served at your table.

The Saturday lunchtime service begins on 13 April, with further trains every month from May to October. The heritage diesel-hauled train will travel from Leeming Bar to Leyburn. You will be seated in an open coach at your own table, set for 1 to 4 people, and if your party is larger, two tables each side of the centre aisle. The railway’s volunteer staff will serve your food and drink as you sit back and relax! A bar service will also be available. On arrival at Leyburn, you will have time for a short comfort break and to stretch your legs before boarding the train for the return journey to Leeming Bar.

Don’t forget to make time for a free guided tour of Leeming Bar’s lovingly restored 1920’s station building. It offers a fascinating window into railway history and what life was like in the early 1900s!

The train will depart Leeming Bar at 13:30 and the journey lasts around two hours. In addition to fish and chips (cod), there will also be the option of sausage and chips and gluten free fish and chips.

Unfortunately, the railway’s vintage coaches do not currently have access for wheelchair users. If you have mobility constraints, please let staff know at the time of booking and they will do their best to allocate a table close to the access door.

The cost is £30 per adult and £15 for children and includes the rail ticket. Places are very limited, and booking is essential. For more information and to book:

Nick Keegan, Fundraising and Marketing Manager at Wensleydale Railway said: “We introduced our Wensleydale Fryer trains last year and they were a big hit with our customers. It’s great to be able to offer the service again this year, with extra dates added to meet demand. We’ve already sold all tickets for our April train, and the May and June dates are nearly sold out. Early booking is advised to avoid disappointment.”
