As trains will not be running, people will have the chance to get close to the impressive locomotives.

For those who might want to wait for a slightly different experience, steam trains will be operating from next weekend.

At least one of them will be going through one of two demonstration lines, allowing people to take unlimited rides behind an engine built for the famous Great Western Railway.

Half-term Steam Days will run on February 19, 20, 23, 26 and 27.
