Details

It’s all about DAD at the railway museum today so bring him along to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of this special steam day.

There’ll be steam train rides available all day long and you can have as many rides as you like. Keep the kids amused with our Milo Mouse trail, climb in and out of our vintage carriages and operate the levers in the Signal Box.

We’ll be running our ‘Taster for a Tenner’ so Dad (and possibly Grandad) can have a go at driving a diesel locomotive for just £10!

The Viaduct Tavern (our miniature pub) will be open for business serving real ale from the Colchester Brewery. There’ll be a Hog Roast or visit the the Chappel Station Café for light lunches, delicious home-made cakes and great coffee
