What is a Music Train?

Music Trains are arranged by the Mid Cheshire Community Rail Partnership to promote the Line. They run from Chester to the Golden Pheasant at Plumley and from Altrincham/Hale to Alexanders in Chester.  The Music Train uses one of the Mid Cheshire Line’s regular hourly services, operated by Northern Rail, which stop at all stations.

How it works - the band plays on the train - we take over a carriage. At our destination everyone alights to visit the pub for drinks and good food – and there is a further session from the band.  And then the band play for us again on the return journey.  If we go to Alexanders there is a another band playing at the venue.

There is no charge for the event - just the price of your ordinary train ticket. There will be a collection for the musicians. You can buy train tickets from staffed stations or from the conductor on the train - you can pay with a credit or debit card.

Extra music trains - as well as operating the public programme of music trains we may be able to arrange a ‘special’ for a group of 30 or more – contact the music trains organiser to discuss the possibilities at musictrains@midcheshirerail.org.uk
