About

Get yourselves down to the museum on the Wednesday in half-term for unlimited rides on one of our classic diesel trains….
Explore the vintage carriages and enormous Goods Shed and check out some grand old locomotives under restoration in the shed.

The fabulous children’s entertainer, Steff and Nonsense will be performing her show for the kids on the Wednesday of the FEBRUARY half-term and we have the hilarious Magic Olly here on the Wednesday of the MAY half-term. These shows are popular so make sure you book early and get your 10% online discount.

You can operate the signal box, climb into the red double-decker bus and there’s a great, train-themed play ground right next to the field so bring a picnic or treat yourselves to lunch or tea and delicious home-made cakes in our vintage railway carriage cafe.
