We've been coming here for years now for my sons birthday. What a great day out. You may think it's expensive to get in but the amount of times you can travel on television train makes it worthwhile. The tunnel is still appreciated, one of the longest restored tunnels out there, even as teens. Don't forget to visit the little... More

This is such a lovely little railway. It will be so nice when the line goes up to Broadway. We visit this railway on a regular basis and we are never disappointed when we go. The volunteers are always friendly and it such a lovely railway to travel on whether you travel on the steam or diesel.
