  • The miniature railway is the star of the show here. There is a nice model to look at, some old buses and a kids playground, but unfortunately a little run down. The yearly fireworks event is great and highly recommended.
  • Great fun. Miniature railway, model railways, old vehicles, special events. All at a good price
  • It's a good afternoon / morning out run by a group of very enthusiastic people. They have a small model railway which you can go for a ride on for a nominal price. There is a small shop selling railway memorbelia and a small children's play area. There is also a "greasy spoon" style cafe. They do a fantastic Santa train every year for younger kids quite magical ( I found it very Harry Potter ish). They regularly run old trains steam and diesel. And they have an excellent firework display every year. Well worth a visit.
  • A fun afternoon, the miniature railway is excellent and great value. Model railway is also very nice to see. Nice little shop and cafe. Not alot of on site parking but usually some spaces for quid for whole day before entrance. Not as much to see in regards to locomotives compared to gcr Loughborough but when the building work and reunification of the two parts of the gcr line, i think this will be gem.
  • Explore the inner geek with vintage trains and busses. Great few hours for all ages. Lovely place that's run by volunteers, funded by donations and passion lives.
