We went on the Power Van and visited the Museum while we were waiting. Very interesting and one actually needs more time than just half hour or so. Will recommend this to people who has an interest in trains or even not, still interesting.

Decided to visit based in a review on TripAdvisor. We spent 3 hours enjoying the variety of Trains, Coaches and Antique cars. All were well taken care off and in immaculate condition. Could have spent a full day. Would recommend to all
