The railway - the oldest continuously working public railway in the world - offers train rides on weekends and bank holidays.

And this weekend hosted its first every Star Rails event in a homage to the hit classics Star Wars.

Fans of the film were also treated to a model starship display and were given the chance to hop in a replica landspeeder.
