My young son loves to travel on our local train. It is improving all the time and gets better every time we go back. The volunteers do a great job of keeping this historic attraction open to the benefit of all of us.

I visited here with my two young grandchildren and we have a great visit. This venue keeps on growing thanks to some funding and dedication from a great bunch of volunteers.

This is a good day out but I think there is still a lot more work to be done if there’s money to invest. The shop area could do with more things about the railway it’s self. It only has things like Thomas or normal...More

Great value for money, children and adults enjoyed the train ride. All staff/volunteers were so helpful and friendly. Gifts the children were given exceeded expectation and I loved the personal touch of the printed carrier bags and Christmas card. Would definitely recommend.
