The Rammy Rattler Steam Train


BOOKINGS ARE NOW UNDER WAY FOR THE ’RAMMY RATTLER’ STEAM TRAIN @ EASTER SATURDAY 7th APRIL

The Bury & District Branch and the Supporters Network are pleased to announce the details for the nostalgic Steam Train Special on the famous East Lancs Railway. Step back in time and join in the flag and scarf waving as we rattle down the track for our away visit to Ramsbottom United on Easter Saturday 7th April.

Tickets are priced at £6.00 for adults and £4.00 for juniors (under 18).

The journey will begin from Heywood ELR station and travel through Bury towards Rawtenstall and Ramsbottom. It has been asked that we try and make the ride last over an hour so the journey will take us THROUGH Ramsbottom on to Rawtenstall before returning back to Ramsbottom for 12.35. ELR have also offered us a return diesel train (included in the price) terminating at Bury (Bolton Street) at 18.10.

People arriving by coaches on the day can be dropped of in Heywood for the 11.00am departure and collected by their coach company in Ramsbottom after the game (subject to your operator arrangements). Wetherspoons in Heywood will be open from 9.00am on the day and have said that they will be happy to welcome any early travellers.

Passengers are asked to make sure they arrive early and on the train in plenty of time as, unlike some transport networks, the volunteer operated train WILL leave Heywood station on time! East Lancs Railway has politely asked that we observe their no smoking policy while on the train. However we are glad to report that refreshments CAN be taken and consumed on board.

Tickets can be ordered either by contacting the Bury & District Branch via email branch@fcumbury.com or by telephoning 07806 809690. Details will be updated on the Supporters Network website http://fcumsn.co.uk and on the unofficial forum http://fcumforum.org.uk

PRE-BOOKED TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR COLLECTION FROM SATURDAY 10th MARCH.
