  • We went on the steam train ,a bit of a bone shaker but great fun!!! You can get on and of and look at each village u stop at and catch the next train .Was amazed how many people waved from there back gardens to us . Got to see the miniature train Museum. The kids with families around us enjoyed that part as they could press the start buttons to see the trains go round tracks .All in all a good day out .
  • The mini train journey is the best reason to make this trip. A step into the past and an experience for adults and children alike. Don't know how much longer these coal engines will be allowed to operate though given our climate emergency! Lovingly maintained mini engines and trains link the countryside for short journeys. Tickets are a bit overpriced but I guess there is a regular crowd so manages to operate successfully.
