  • Great place,shop, museum,tea room. Steam trains & diesel trains run & they have special events like Christmas specials-a must for kiddies. We have seen the railway grow over the years from almost nothing and it's all run by volunteers.
  • Great day out for all the family, lots to see at various stops and a lovely canal walk and fabulous country pubs, going to return next year
  • The train journey very good and lots of nostalgia. The 40s event could have been much more. Mainly American and German.
  • Well worth a visit. The line is only a few miles long but charming stations and very helpful staff.
  • I didn't dislike it as the place is excellent. the cafe was run by a very pleasant volunteer but the same can't be said for some of the other volunteers I encountered one especially was grumpy and unfriendly when I asked for directions. as one who is a volunteer for another project I think they should be given a guide line on how to treat their guest's. but I think I am being a bit harsh as its a really worthwhile place to visit
