“Fab little Museum in the Middle of Nowhere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

A must visit place for all railway buffs! Recently re-branded as Rocks by Rail Museum.

This little museum run totally by volunteers is a lovely little place. Staff are friendly and very helpful, carn't fault them at all. Service was excellent although the range of foods was somewhat limited.

A nice little trip out on a sunny day, best days to visit are steam days.

A Superb collection of railway locomotives and stock from the ironstone history of the county of Rutland, this little museum has to be on all lovers of steam visit list.

Toilet Block needs replacing and was shabby, this was the only sour note in an otherwise very enjoyable day. Great people and a great little museum, if you haven't been here and are a steam buff then this is well worth a visit.
