The Impossible Dream

Lady of Legend, King Edward II & the Steam Railmotor - Easter April 19th-22nd

See our unique collection of Great Western Railway steam engines, coaches, wagons, buildings and small relics based around the original 1930s engine shed

My friends and I visited here on the recent Steam Day, which was fantastic! It was great to go on the old carriages being pulled by the old locos. I think it is probably appreciated most by those already interested in railway history and trains, however, it was really accessible and interactive for those new to the railway!
