The team at the front counter were really pleasant and had a bit of a joke. Entry fee was reasonable as you could stay as long as you liked. The tram ride was good, the trains on show were interesting... more »
Great day out for a family. Have a couple of rides on the steam tram, look around the roundhouse and watch the model trains. The model trains were my boys’ favourite. The place is run by really nice people who are passionate about the place and its history. If you’re a train nerd or raising a couple of them you’ll love this place.
Such fun for all ages. So interesting, and beautifully presented. With a sweet little onsite cafe for refreshments, and dedicated volunteers, many of whom were dressed in period costume. Love the old retro tickets and memorabilia all in situ. The site is not so large as to be overwhelming, it was just the right size and so-o pleasant. A tonic.
