We visited the railway with our children aged 5, 8 and 9 and had a lovely time even with cloudy, rainy weather. The railway is beautifully kept with a great nostalgic feel to it. There are some nice touches like the old suitcase used as a flower pot. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the driver of the diesel even let the children ride in the cab with him and toot the horn - how proud they were about that!
Highly recommended for a slow, gentle day out.
