Living only 10 miles from the Mid Suffolk Light Railway Museum, I never visited it until recently and it really impressed me.
You are welcomed by dedicated volunteers all in authentic railway uniforms and all have friendly personalities and always smiling. These guys and girls really do love their work!
The little steam train and its station is a direct recreation of the former Mid Suffolk Light Railway using original buildings from the railway, typical coaches of the line and the little tank engine takes you all 500 yards through delightful countryside offering timeless views of Mid Suffolk and its railway.
The £5 admission provides you with unlimited rides in first and third classes of the train and the added bonus of a journey with the guard as you see ahead down the line. With Gift Aid, that £5 is valid for 12 months admission to the railway at no extra cost - How do they do it?
The Museum displays are very clear, well displayed and complely vistor friendly for all ages and sizes. The on-site catering is well-run offering a wide variety of reasonably priced hot and cold food - again, how do they do it?
The shop is well stocked with gifts and souvenirs to cover almost all tastes.
Overall, The Mid Suffolk Light Railway is an incredible place to visit and other heritage railways could do well learning from them.
