Thank you very much for the very enjoyable day out our family spent with you yesterday. Everything was well organised, social distancing, sanitiser etc. Our son Jonathan lives, breathes and sleeps trains. He has really missed seeing them over the last few months.

Thank you again, a visit worth waiting for and we will be back. Jonathan took some fantastic photos.
