The Margate Train is a huge old stationary train that has had the carriages converted into shops. The kids loved to crawl up into the engine and play with the few levers still left intact (most of it has been gutted) and you can easily sit up there with them. It's actually really interesting to look at.
I can't comment on the shops as after we played on the train we headed down to the little sand and the kids were tearing around on the little bikes and scooters they had available. The sandpit also has lots of big dump trucks to play with. There's a small section of grass surrounding the pit and picnic tables with umbrellas to sit and watch.
I did look at the prices of the pancake train and was a bit shocked; $20+ for a pancake with savoury topping? I hope they are good!
