About Us

We are the Poulton & Wyre Railway Society. Formed in 2006 our society was set up to act as a catalyst to reopen the railway (the line) between Poulton and Fleetwood.

Substantial work has already been done clearing stations and the line between Shirley Heights bridge at Poulton-le-Fylde and the buffers just beyond Burglars Alley near to Fleetwood, including Thornton for Cleveleys Station and Burn Naze Station.

We have a John Fowler shunter from the Leyland Motors' works at Leyland which has undergone major restoration.
