The Caledonian Railway is an entirely volunteer run non-profit organisation, with funds being reinvested into the restoration and preservation of the railway. The Brechin Railway Preservation Society was formed in 1979 with the operating arm, Caledonian Railway Brechin Limited, being incorporated on the 16 December 1982. Caledonian Railway Brechin Limited has won several awards and built up a reputation as one of the most visited tourist attractions in Angus, all thanks to our dedicated team of volunteers.

So sit back, relax and watch the world go by from the comfort of our heritage trains hauled by both steam and diesel locomotives.
