Fun and interestingAlways wanted to go there and now I have. Very pleased I went. Lot's of interesting things to see and do and learned so much. It was good to almost step back in time. Defo want to go back when the trains are running. Highly recommended.

Steam Day

Star Tugs Weekend

Different to other steam railway experiences - Because it is really a depot and can be described as an outdoor museum. Plenty of old trains and rolling stock to see and you can ride some albeit on a very small demonstration line. But for a different steam experience this is recommended. Maybe best to go on an event day.
