Welcome to RVLS
Welcome to the home of Ribble Valley Live Steamers
Ribble Valley Live Steamers was founded in 1985 to bring model engineers together to develop & enhance skills, run the miniature railway, provide passenger rides and organising social events.
We are based at Edisford Bridge in Clitheroe and have been continually developing the site throughout the years. The miniature railway is a raised level track which is very interesting to drive on with a variety of gradients. A full circuit of the track is approximately 1,225 feet.
The raised track caters for 2.5”, 3.5” & 5” gauge locomotives with the track having 6 steaming bays which connect to the main track via a traverser that is pneumatically controlled and interlocked in place.
We try to open the railway as often as we can, mainly on Saturdays & Sundays depending on the weather and member availability.
Keep up to date with running days via our Facebook page.
No matter what your area of expertise, we are always on the lookout for new members to help us run the railway at Edisford Bridge.
