Probably one of the best displayed railway collections. Museum in a war time food store well presented. Some unusual exhibits include 1930's tube train being restored. Good access on site

Had a great time lots to do and see. Would recommend going on a day where they have their special days. Very interesting experience and loved going on the steam trains. The Great Train Robbery and postal train was informative. Great for adults and children.

I was running a bit late and didn't get there until 3.40 to find that the last admittance was at 3.30. No problem, I may go back there at some stage. I think it would be quite good, especially for kids.
