  • My 5 year old loved it. Bank holiday Monday lots of activities to get hands on. Mini train. Cafe shop and as many rides on the steam train as you want. All the engines had their faces on too
  • Good fun day out for the family, if anyone's interested in trains or engines or even how they work, then I'd recommend coming children under 3 go free and there's an on site cafe and unlimited train rides
  • As many rides on the steam train as you like, several trains and carriages in the museum with informational cards, toys for kids to play with, model railways and a gift shop and cafe. A great afternoon out!
  • A fun and friendly Father's day with an interesting array of vehicles an enjoyable train ride an interesting museum of railway memorabilia and an appreciation of the work being undertaken.I wish the society well and hope they are able to continue the good work
  • Lovely day out with the grandchildren, will definitely go back.
