    You buy a good value ticket (important for families, though they could make it 3 children) and then ride up and down all day long. Ok it's slow and doesn't go far but that suited us just fine. The sta...  more »

    Visited with children and grandparent. This isn't a fast train which due to children walking around meant there wasn't anyone falling over! Toddler enjoyed it although a couple of waits were a bit lon...  more »

    Took our young children for the santa ride and it was a marvellous experience from the train ride to santas grotto. It was well organised and fantastic value for money. Will definitely be going again.  more »

  • Good food and cafe was really good. Shame the trains only running on a Thursday. As it was the school holidays I thought they might be running the trains more often.
  • Enjoyable afternoon.lovely cafe wih really cheerfull , & welcoming staff. A real pleasure. Thankyoi
  • Always puts a smile on our faces. Ideal for a circular walk with wonderful scenery. Take the binoculars and cameras to make the most of the wildlife. The railway is home to a dedicated team who have raised it up over the years offering train rides and a range of events. No matter what the weather you will enjoy your time here, today it's minus 2 but a real fire at the Sidings Cafe will thaw you out. It offers a range of drinks, and food such as sandwiches, jackets, beans on toast and toasted teacakes. A quick browse in the vintage shop and the second hand item carriage is a nice distraction before we walk back to the Burntwood Rugby Club where we parked. There is parking at the railway station for visitors it's just that our sons play rugby.
  • Complete waste of what should have been a fun family day out. We sat in the first station for forty minutes while the locomotive was changed, nobody told us anything. The train eventually lurched to the second station, breaking down shortly afterwards. Again nobody told us anything and after a long wait we were taken back to the first station and our journey was over. There was no proper opportunity to leave the train at any point. Our children were disappointed as they missed their visit the Thomas the Tank Engine shop. Nobody seemed to care enough even to offer an explanation of what had happened at any point. I have experienced many of these heritage steam railways and a train ride of some description was the very least we expected. Even the toys we bought at the shop in the first station are Poundland quality. I appreciate that on a different day it probably would have been fine, but I wouldn't bring my family here again. Considering the cost of the tickets, we weren't very chuffed on this occasion.
  • Great little railway run by passionate volunteers. Not too expensive and a nice coffee shop with good cake selection. An interesting museum on site too and a well stocked souvenir shop for the train lovers!
