Dean Forest Railway
The Dean Forest Railway is a recreation of the historic Severn & Wye railway that was restored to its current state. You can enjoy a trip of over 8 miles through the Forest Of Dean on the line between Parkend and Lydney.
The centre also has a very interesting museum that specialises in Forest of Dean and Severn & Wye joint railway artefacts.
