Before you read on, I confess I absolutely love a heritage railway and this one has diesel engines as well as steam, so it was going to be a winner for me. But the volunteers here do a particularly terrific job; everything is so well organised, from the trains running to time and description, to a really lovely tea shop (a timely cream tea can really placate a less interested husband). They have all sorts of engines and carriages which are both restored and working, and also awaiting a great deal of loving care, and I loved seeing all the work in progress. My favourite touch was the rather imposing and appropriately attired Stationmaster. When I retire in 30 years I hope I can volunteer somewhere similar.
