Muffin Running weekend

5th and 6th October 2024 | Events

Built in 1967, Muffin is the oldest steam locomotive at Lappa Valley and this weekend is your chance to ride behind it.

Once upon a time, there were only two locomotives at Lappa Valley – Zebedee and Muffin.

Built in 1967 and designed by renowned steam engineer David Curwen, it was formerly based at the Longleat Safari Park and was the second steam locomotive to arrive at Lappa Valley in 1976.

Muffin is a favourite amongst visitors and drivers alike. That’s why over the weekend of the 5th and 6th October 2024, we will be running Muffin in regular service.

It will be running at least every 40 minutes between Benny Halt and East Wheal Rose, plus you will have the opportunity to it her up-close.

Please note, that although we will of course endeavour to run the advertised services, we reserve the right to amend or remove services of locomotives due to circumstances out of our control – for example, mechanical failure. Muffin will be running alternate services with one of our diesel locomotives.
