  • Took our grandchildren on the heritage ride today, they loved it. The staff and drivers (all volunteers) were lovely and took time to make sure you enjoyed your time on board.Our two and four year olds certainly did. The museum is small but it's free, the train rides are on specific dates only and children under five are free. Prices for the train are very reasonable as is the food in the cafe. We've been several times and will certainly be back in the future. This museum is only possible through donations so go and support them.
  • Small, but very interesting. Very friendly staff. This place also has a fantastic little tea room, with smashing food with very reasonable prices.
  • Easy parking not massive so even for non trainspotters it doesn't get too boring. Just a nice few hours spent here with my 9yr old train crazy son.
  • Grey place to visit but not on a Monday, as I did because it's closed .But a very friendly member of staff let me wonder about in side the museum for 15 min .And it was that act of kindness from staff that made me give it 5 star
  • Small but very informative museum. Selection of second hand books (some good and interesting ones) reasonably priced. Train and journey smashing.
