Had a great time lots to do and see. Would recommend going on a day where they have their special days. Very interesting experience and loved going on the steam trains. The Great Train Robbery and postal train was informative. Great for adults and children.

If you're interested in the history of the Great Central Railway or the Metropolitan Railway this attraction will be of particular interest. Anyone with a general interest in railways should find it well worth spending a few hours here. But it's worth noting that you...More
