This year, Ayrshire Railway Preservation Group is introducing a couple of dedicated Schools Days into our programme of Operating Days. These days must be booked in advance, and will be held on Tuesdays 6th & 13th of June 2017. Other dates may become available, depending upon demand.


These schools days are aimed at P5, P6 & P7 and will consist of educational activities concerning coal mining, iron smelting and railway transport. There will be a behind-the-scenes guided tour of the Dunaskin site, and a train ride which will be hauled by a heritage diesel locomotive. Cost £5 per pupil, accompanying adults free, for a half day visit.


If you think your school may be interested in visiting the only heritage railway in the south west of Scotland, please send an email in the first instance to :
