Under Pressure!

The venue hosted a Steampunk Market and fabulous combination! The rolling stock and static displays are both interesting and informative . A steam train ride a bonus.

We took our 2 grandsons last week to meet Santa on the train. The staff/ volunteers were great with the boys, everyone was so friendly. Santa came on the train and sat and spoke with every child posed for photos and then said he would be in his grotto later if they wanted to see him again. Nothing was rushed... More

A good all round afternoon, a coffee, a mince pie - donations only so that was nice! Nice trip on the train, just long enough to get round everyone. The presents were very good. I'm not sure what people are expecting on the scenery. We are in the middle of a city here! Well done to all the volunteers and... More

Took our Great Grandchildren on the Santa Train with their parents, Aunt and Uncle, Grandma and Grandad. We all had a great time. Santa was lovely and spoke to all the children on the train. Each one got a present and the look on their faces was superb.

Took our grandchildren on the santa train, we all enjoyed ourselves, very friendly and helpful staff at the station , interesting little museum too although was spoilt by disruptive children running up and down, it clearly states children must be supervised but these 5 or 6 weren't, our 2 yr old was intimidated by them nearly knocking her over ....

Steam train enthusiasts will love this. Museum has lots of old trains & carriages, with good souvenir shop. Only a short train ride which is a bit pricey for the distance travelled but worth it for the experience.

Ride the train with Santa on board making his way through the carriages having gifts to each child. A fun couple of hours. And cheap too.

Was a really fun day out. With two children with additional needs, days out can be hard to plan for, but the volunteers couldn't have been more helpful. Really looking forward to coming back.
