The Scottish Industrial Railway Centre opens its doors to the public on special Steam Days every summer.


Run entirely by volunteers, Steam Days are a fun family day out, and offer a great opportunity for visitors to experience our 'living museum' where our industrial steam and diesel locomotives can be seen working in an authentic setting.


Enjoy a Brake Van ride on a short section of the Dalmellington Iron Company's main line, view our locomotives, visit our model railway and check out our photographic archives.


We offer a shop, cafe and free parking for your convenience.

Wheelchair friendly.

Come and visit!
