“Very interesting museum.”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Stumbled across this museum excellent value for money. Very interesting railway memorabilia kept us here for two hours, shop full of models with staff who know what they are talking about . Went and had tea and buns in railway carriage which was a first for us. Great place for big and small kids to pass away a few hours.

“Worth a visit , kids loved it .”
Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Great little steam train takes you around a track a couple of times , kids loved it . Museum is small but again both the train and museum are very cheap . Had lunch in the train buffet care . Food basic , but good value . Lovely town , well worth a visit .

“Must for the kids !”
Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Spent a few hours at the miniature railway and museum. Miniature railway is really good value, long track giving a 10 min ride. Museum is also really great for kids who like trains, some beautiful models and full of memorabilia and layouts which you pay a bit extra for them to work. Kids loved the place.

“Nice half day out.”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

We visited with our 3 children ages 14,11 and 5. The museum is small but very interesting. The shop has a wide selection of gifts ranging from pocket money toys for the children to collectables costing a lot more and everything in between. We had a ride on the mini railway which was really nice (7.50 for all 5 of us). We had a snack in the buffet train which was reasonably priced. My 5 year old drove a tram (1 pound extra, coin operated) which she really enjoyed doing she also drove a bumper car (50p extra, coin operated) which she also really enjoyed. We spent about 3 hours here.
