Public Service, Commercial & Emergency Vehicle Day


East Anglian Railway Museum, Chappel Station, Colchester CO6 2DS

Sunday 23rd June 2024

“Unlimited rides on a train hauled by one of our vintage Steam Locomotives, with Vintage Bus Rides to Bures and back.

Come and get up close and personal to a display of buses, trucks, military vehicles, fire engines, police cars and ambulances. Learn about the history of the fire service thanks to a pop up museum and get your photo taken in the drivers seat of a police car. There will also be free bus rides to Bures and back on some of the buses in the display, a round trip of about 25 minutes.

We will have one of our steam and diesel trains in operation, as well as our miniature railway all offering unlimited rides all day long. The Braintree & Halstead Model Railway Club will have their club rooms open with an impressive display of model railways. Let your little ones let off some steam on our train themed playground and let them pretend to be a bus driver on our play and picnic bus.

Platform Two Café (run by Stour Valley Catering) will be open selling hot and cold drinks and snacks and our very own micro pub, The Viaduct, will be open selling a range of beers, ciders, wines and soft drinks.

Book your tickets online in advance for a 5% discount.”
