I have just finished my Half Day Steam Loco Driver Experience at Telford Steam Railway. Although it is a small preserved railway, I felt this added to the experience because as soon as you complete one task you are on to the next. This kept customer participation to the maximum.
All the staff I met were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable and of course doing what they do for the love of it. Anyone with an interest in Steam Engines would certainly enjoy this treat.
Make sure you take suitable footwear, gloves ( forgot mine ) and overalls (perhaps not white ones). Don't forget your camera.

We have a very large family and as such struggle for things to do. This is a yearly visit and we have even bouht season pass tickets for all the local museums. Highly recommended great fun learning tools for children.

Whats not to like, if you like trains Its a good place to visit. A small preserved railway run by local enthusiasts who are friendly & knowledgeable. Trains run most weekends during the summer on a pleasant ride along the small section of track , there is steam tram that often runs, a model railway, & small ride on trains when the Phoenix Model enthusiasts are there (small extra cost), refreshments are available, or you have a picnic by the lake. But by far the best time to visit is Christmas for the Santa specials. Its no fuss no frills just a good day out.

Awkward railway station which can become over crowded and cluttered with little to no space. Not good if you suffer from claustrophobia one would presume
