This is a lovely short railway, where a round trip takes about 50 minutes, including 20 mins at a 'museum' stop (lots of kids activities here) and 5 minutes is taken up with the engine being reversed at the other end. If you wish you...More

This was a lovely (short) day out. It's a little trip into the countryside where they then move the engine from one end of the train to the other to go back again. On the way back you stop at the museum for about 30-40...More

We had a wonderful time. My son and daughter got to operate the points and the conductor Mark was really informative and patient with them. Loved the miniature railway and the engine shed. I learnt things as well as the children. Highly recommend a visit
