Operating Days

We will be open every Sunday throughout the year and also on bank holidays and for some additional special events. We also open for on some weekdays during the summer months and at half term. On many Saturdays the railway is used for steam footplate training courses and on these days we are unable to offer a public train service although the site is open for visitors to watch the activities. The buffet, shop and some other facilities will normally also be open.

On running days, the station and buffet are open from 9-00am for breakfast or other refreshments. Trains normally run about every 30 minutes throughout the day from 11.00am to 5.00pm except for Santa trains and on certain special event days

Steam Days

Enjoy a day of unlimited train rides behind one of our heritage steam engines on one of our steam days at Isfield station. Due to some complications that can occur with steam locomotives the Lavender Line reserves the right to substitute diesel traction should steam traction become unavailable.

Trains depart from Platform 2 and run on a half hourly timetable from 11.00 till 4.30. Normal ticket prices apply on most steam days.

Diesel Days

Why not come and visit the Lavender Line on one of our quieter dates and enjoy unlimited train rides behind one of our heritage diesels. On some diesel days you may be able to travel in our unique Wickham railbus enabling you to enjoy a 360 degree view of the beautiful Sussex countryside.
