By time the visit I mean get a time table on line or at the tourist office and THEN see the steam trains of yesterday. Go on a Sunday and enjoy a journey - or simply take in the museum.

if you don't have te opportunity to be there on a steam day (20 sept in 2014 ),it is rather disappointing .Few comments in English.Lots of steam engines and coaches in the roundhouse and elsewhere but you can't get inside; Only for real train buffs..

Not every day you get to ride on a railbus; mining train and push the handle on one of those Great St Trinian Robbery track carts. This is a smallish museum but fills a half day with great exhibits and things to ride on. We...More
