  • Perfect place for all rail fans. Also good for families with children. Best before on the Internet, check out the special events. With steam trains, lots of show rides and smaller trips in the surrounding area. Everything beautifully organized and relatively inexpensive for the island also.

  • I've been coming here for years as a volunteer in the workshops, but took my girlfriend along for a day out today and had a lovely time. Its more of a working museum than a railway, but packs a lot into a quarter mile. The miniature railway is particularly good, giving a nice run up and down the site too. The museums are laid out and presented well with good interpretation, there's a great cafe/restaurant, facilities are well maintained, and wheelchair access good throughout. There's lot of stuff to look round, and bits and pieces to catch interest all over the place. The site has loads for youngsters to look at and do, so great for families even if it's not one of their popular Thomas events. Overall, it's well worth a visit.
  • My family of 5 had a great day out. Plenty of fun train and train related things to see and go. The facilities were top notch lots of toilets all over the site. The staff and volunteers were all lovey.
  • Had a fabulous Day out with Thomas here with our 2 year old. Lovely trains, plenty of decent food and seating. Really lovely!
  • Fantastic day out! Friendly, knowledgeable staff in a well maintained and fascinating attraction. Loved the staff in the TPO display!
  • A lovely place to visit set either side of an active railway line with preserved operations possible on both sides (depending on operating dates and times)
