We found the little railway model shop next to the church and then noticed the train rides sign, £2 for 8 mins so we decided to try it. The ride was fun and brought back childhood memories. After our ride, my husband enjoyed exploring the...More

Went on the little steam train. Great. Best £2 you could spend. When the national rail train was in they blew there horns at each other which was good. Great way of killing a bit of time and the views are good

Really interesting place to visit with the family, many old railway things to look at including steam trains, model layout, pictures and models

This review is for the miniature steam train that you can go on by the museum. £2 each is a bargain and great for kids and big kids alike 🙂

Despite being a little careworn there is a lot to see, many artifacts and lots of railway models. Staff are enthusiastic, helpful and the shop is packed with things to tempt you to part with your money. Outside a miniature railway is fun for children...More
