Friendly welcoming, .small but has a massive Dream and its happening. Everyone brilliant train crew helped to go out there way to help and answer questions from the very young to us oldies. Its all voluntary run .and they put other preserved railways to shame .One person I would mention who will go that extra bit .is Marc. He must run on batteries he is brilliant. Never stops .,and entertaining. None stop .Buffet staff .welcome, clean as expected Dogs welcome separate in the buffet for them .prices .well as we have been and coming out of lock down. The whole railway has not ramped their prices up .like the coastal towns near by have done .when this railway gets to Louth it will be a magnet for tourists railway and none railway enthusiasts .

I would like to say a big thank you for your very positive feedback. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your day, it is very important to us that our visitors arrive as our guests and go home with a smile on their faces. I would like to say a special thank you for mentioning myself, it gives me great pleasure to be able to be part of a team making our guests have an enjoyable day out and if I can do anything to make their day go smoothly then I will go that extra mile. Thanks for recognising our value for money , we do set ourselves to be good value but also keeping costs to cover what we need to continue running and continuing to give a service, especially with the ever increasing costs, but we do our best to keep costs down wherever possible. We do hope you will visit again and we look forward to welcoming you back. Best wishes, Marc

What a fantastic steam railway this is. I have two small boys who are train obsessed and they loved it. I would also like to mention how lovely the people who work here are. Everyone we met was polite and helpful, even helping us on and off with our pram. Thank you so much for a brilliant day, we will be coming back soon.

My husband and I had a fantastic 1940's day experience. Great fun! We only intended to check it out and stay an hour or so, but we ended up staying 6 hours. It was a great turnout and we met and chatted to a great many visiting eventors and staff. They were all wonderfully attired and so friendly. We can't believe we didn't know it was here even though we have lived in Grimsby for 20 years. We shall make it a ritual visit from now on. It just proves that you don't need to spend alot to have a great time.
