Due to the restrictions of the Covid 19  regulations, the East Lancashire Railway is now closed for the forseeable future. 


Currently ALL Bury Standard 4 Group activities are suspended.


Our Shop Coach at the ELR Bury Bolton Street station  has also closed and the 'click and collect' system has been suspended. 


We wish all our members and supporters to be safe in this difficult  New year.

The online Shop Coach ordering facility, which will cover our main items    ( Please see the link above to the ' Click and Collect' facility. ) has been suspended

A children's section with railway toys, games and souvenirs.



For the railway modeller we have new and used locos, coaches, wagons, track and layout accessories from the main manufacturers.



We have our own model railway display and test track.



Our shop coach staff are always looking to buy model railway locos, rolling stock, track and accessories to increase our sales stock.



We are always extremely grateful for donations of magazines, books and model railway items to add to our shop stocks to raise funds.
