Steam Railtours

Founded in September 1990 The Appleby Frodingham Railway – Scunthorpe (Formerly preservation society) formed to Celebrate 100 years of steelmaking and run railtours of Scunthorpe works, and we have continued on doing so for 30 years.

On selected dates, the Appleby Frodingham Railway Preservation Society runs Railtours around the Scunthorpe Steelworks site. With guides on hand, you’ll learn all about iron and steel making and glimpse red hot steel. Tours are suitable for all the family. You can also enjoy a coffee in a restored carriage when you make a short stop at the loco sheds. For more details and to book please visit the website below.
