Really Enjoyable and Interesting Place - Really enjoyable museum, with a wide range of trains and other Great Western railway related things to see and do for all ages! I visited on a day that trains weren’t running but there was still plenty to see and do to fill a day. I’ve been going past on the train for years and never made it inside, so I was really pleased to get the chance to go - thank you!
