Owner description: A family friendly, living, breathing railway museum. Immerse yourself in a real steam railway museum and get up close and personal to our wide collection of steam trains, diesel locomotives and vintage carriages. Celebrate an exciting period in railway history! Our atmospheric Victorian buildings, restored trains and working signal boxes tell a unique story of a time when the railway was the largest employer in the region.

Great museum, with many activities for kids - steam and coal train rides, mini railway and lots of history. It's quite a small museum, but packed with great interactive activities for the little ones. Great day out near Colchester.

an old style 'museum'. The rooms were brilliant but the real fun was the engines, carriages etc that are scattered around the site. I was on the plate of 4 engines and watched renovation work. It was great to be able to scramble over the exhibits! get dirty and smell the engine shed. Great fun.

This site is next to an existing rail route (such as Quainton Road, for example) and therefore has broadly similar restrictions. However, for a small site it boasts an interesting array of vehicles (yes, that's my thing) and the people there are very friendly and helpful. As if that's not exciting enough, Blur have played there twice! (At time of writing).
