  • This is an awesome site with lots of things to see and do. It is targeted at those who prefer diesels rather than steam, and includes a number of interesting exhibits. Of particular importance is the prototype HST which now runs on occasional weekends. The classic Valenta engines produce their famous sound giving an amazing experience. Other exhibits include a collection of diesels, including a maintenance shed, a model railway, a miniature railway and a selection of preserved buses. Definitely well worth a visit. Check the 125 Group's web site first if you're after the HST to ensure you're not disappointed.
  • A great day out for all the family with a mini railway and a Steam train journey in offer. The only negative is lack of signs showing were places are it's all very vague...
  • Lots of engineering work in progress to see on vintage trains and buses. The staff seem to love discussing the work. Great for anyone who likes history and engineering. The rideable mini railway shuts down for the winter though.
  • The main steam train journey is slow and long but makes for good value for money. Try and go when the miniature trains run as these are great fun for all. Model displays and museum free to enter
  • Just been on the Santa Train, great family experience and lovely afternoon. Our 3 year old loved it! Santa came and sat in our carriage and our daughter received a quality gift. Well organised by volunteers who have put so much effort in to the event. Well worth the money and also had a nice festive treat and tipple. Would recommend.
