  • A very nice place to go with kids. We really enjoyed going in the steam trains. We went during easter weekend so there was a nice quizz contest for kids. It was fun collecting answers through all the places. We really loved the Train Discovery Centre.
  • A Nice Relaxing few hours,a ride. On an Old Steam Train, then watched a Bird of Prey show, But if You have time there are other things that You could do, Well worth a visit,
  • I like steam engines and I certainly liked the static show. I cannot agree with the overrated views of some who have not clearly had better tracks to ride on.
  • A great place for a day out. The day ticket includes travel on the train and admissions to their Museum and Story attractions. Great for a rainy day.
  • Pleasant couple of hours, pleenty of seating both indoors and out. Shop, museum, model as well as steam trains. Helpful staff.
