Great Afternoon Out - Came with my husband and twins, my twin boy is a real seven year old rail enthusiast. Very welcoming, very interesting and he loved it. Really appreciated the time that staff spent with us - one in particular at the signal box - to explain and answer our questions- Alison Whitehead-Shah - March 2020
