Help us celebrate our 60th Anniversary in style by returning 1466, our first loco, to steam in time for 2021

This is fascinating place to visit. There are two steam trains running with unlimited access to both within your ticket price as well as lots of other things to see. The engine and cartridge sheds allow you to get close and climb inside a couple of engines. You can also see lots of restoration projects being worked on. Well worth the entrance fee.
