  • Plenty of things to see and a real ale bar in an old railway carriage. A ride on the train is a step back in time albeit to 3rd class :-)  more »

  • Great little historic steam preservation centre. Watch out for the Station Master who was a bit grumpy with some visitors we observed. Good couple of hours visit to be had.
  • A nice travel back in time. Staff really friendly and helpful .
  • A wonderful little railway that oozes charm, giving an idea of how a rural railway would have looked at the turn of the century. All trains are steam hauled with vintage carriages. Exceptionally friendly staff (who are all volunteers) who are really happy to talk and tell you more about the railway. It has a good little museum of site giving the history of the original railway, and a real ale bar and a cafe.
  • Historical railway with friendly and helpful staff of volunteers.
  • Fantastic day out to the Vintage Christmas Market and Trips on the little Train. Everyone there was very helpful and very informative.The atmosphere was lovely and we all spent hours enjoying ourselves.The whole family went into the cafe and had very tasty food and drink, also burgers on the station platform, then to round up the day a visit to the sidings into a carriage which houses the Bar, we had a very nice Mulled Aspal Cider. Thank you to everyone at Mid- Suffolk Light Railway , I would recommend this venue to everyone
