“Very nice outing.”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Our one visit to Glenbrook proved to be a very nice outing. It coincided with the steam expo. The train trip was very nice - a bit far out to get there, but surely worth the trip.

Reviewed January 23, 2012

A great place for train buffs. Very well set up. For those who remember steam engines a must to visit. A great place to take all the family - the kids will love it and some Dads!

“Rail me in”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

I love this place. Having 3 grandaughters, they've just loved being taken there by Grandma and Pa. Theme days (Thomas the Tank Engine) have been a rip roaring success - reasonable costs for train journey.
