A RAILWAY museum is promising days of steam-powered fun as it announces the dates for upcoming steam train events.

The East Anglian Railway Museum, at Chappel, is set to host a number of summer steam days.

Since being able to reopen following the easing of lockdown restrictions, the museum has once again started hosting events just in time for summer.

Now visitors will be able to get up close an personal with the museums selection of steam locomotives.

Families will be able to explore the museum’s attractions, including the restoration shed, Victorian goods shed, signal box and children’s play area.

The museum will also be holding steam train rides as well as opening a brand new miniature railway.

Held on Sundays, the first event will take place on July 25.

This will be followed up by four more events throughout August, starting on August 1 and ending on August 22.

Manager Neil Temlett said: “Join us this summer as we celebrate reopening with a relaxed, family session.

“We operate rides between 11am and 3pm, but the museum opens at 10am until 5pm during the summer months. Summer is a great time to visit – the flowers are in full bloom, the weather is warm and we have plenty of open space to relax in.

“Check out our working restoration shed, magnificent Victorian goods shed, period waiting rooms and signal box as well as the heritage centre and kids’ playground.”

Adult tickets are £10 (£5 children, under-fours free).
