About Ayrshire Railway Preservation Group

The Doon Valley Railway is a 'living museum'.  Here unique and historically significant industrial steam and diesel locomotives are restored and can be seen working in an authentic setting.

We are the only Steam Railway in the south west of Scotland.

Travel behind one of our restored steam engines along a short section of track.

Don't forget to visit the Signal Box Cafe when you are here.
Visitors can travel behind our industrial steam and diesel locomotives on the former NCB line along the beautiful Doon Valley, enjoy light snacks in our Signal Box café and see numerous pieces of rolling stock from a variety of industries.
