Always take my 2 ypung sons here to see father christmas, not so commercial as other places, rough round edges and not pretentious! Short ride on steam train to the model railway which has the best model railway around, my two sons spend ages looking at it! Dather christmas spends a long tme talking to them, doesn't rush you through and the the gift is quite good. Free mince pie in the cafe next to model railway, friendly staff but limited menu as run by volunteers who all worked hard. We all enjoyed a ride on the wobbly (like Toby) tram over the road too! We went in the summer and were shown around the engine sheds by an enthusiastic volunteer who made a unscheduled stop when on the tram ride to show us around.

This railway is very expensive for the short amount of time you are actually on the train. The people dont really seem to want to be there.
