Great range of fantastic trucks, (and a few cars) in great condition. Also some very old stuff from the early days. Need a full day here if this is of interest, but if you've only a couple of hours, still worth the time.

I looked them up and l think they open every day except like xmas day etc. Open from 9am till 5pm. Might be best to ring them on 08 89527161 or look up their site and email them before you plan to go. Hope this helps you.
