I took my grandson to this, so that he could see how big these engines are. We were given a very detailed overview as to what, how, and why this engine is being restored (by private volunteers). Really impressive

We love it when the grandkids visit! Thank you for leaving us a nice review and for exposing young ones to 1940's rail heritage and big steam. Hope to see you again soon.

Very thorough and technical overview of the 17 year rebuild of the old steam engine. Not a kids thing unless they are older and willing to listen to the tour guide.Takes about an hour and only done a couple of times week.
