“Great for train fans, big and small.”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We visited yesterday for a family afternoon out (two boys aged 3 and 1 years, mum and dad). We were impressed by the standard of the place. It has a small museum with old trains, two are open for people to walk through which thrilled my son. There is lots of information everywhere to read and would be great for school trips. The train ride was short although your ticket allows unlimited trips back and forth to Middleton park. All the staff are volunteers and are happy to answer any questions and let you watch everything they are doing. We visited on a Sunday which was the steam train trip, other days have a diesel train so check the website to make sure you get the right day. The café is small but serves drinks and has toilet facilities.

It's small but as it's one of the oldest steam trains in the world it's a must see for steam enthusiasts from near and far

“Just a treat”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

History on the doorstep. The simplicity shows off the invention of the time so well. Not wrapped up in a big presentation but presenting what is best about this era.
