Our 5th new location to visit in 2024 will be to GWR's Plymouth Laira Depot which will take place on the 28th June. This visit is limited to 12 places. Tickets will go on sale at on the 28th May 2024 at 8pm in the members shop.

Tickets will be £24 each, with all profits going to the Samaritans charity. 

The tours will start promptly at 11:00 with a Safety Briefing from the Lead Guide and the Rail Manager. Members should arrive 10 minutes beforehand. Car parking is available on site. Minimum age is 14 and anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult who agrees to take full responsibility for the young person. The tour is expected to take around 2 hours.

All visitors must wear the following equipment for safety: Safety footwear is mandatory (NO TRAINERS). Orange Hi Vis Vest and Bump Cap. Both GWR and Rail Riders will be unable to provide this equipment. If you arrive and don't have the equipment listed then unfortunately you will be refused entry to the site.

The aim is to see as much of the rail site as possible, however GWR cannot guarantee access to any particular area or item of rolling stock during the tour as the site will be fully operational. 

Photography is allowed for the most part and the Safety Briefing at the start will identify any rolling stock or areas where photography is not allowed. All photographs and video taken are for personal use only.  We have permission for a group photo at the end of the tour for publicity.

This tour will be for members only, so why not sign up for a membership today and gain all the benefits of being a member including the chance to take part on our members tours of railways and depots and other special things the ordinary enthusiast cannot do.
