About

Let off steam at these great kids’ activity day! Under supervision from our friendly volunteers, have a go at operating the crossing gates, be a train guard for a day or learn how the signals work in the signal box. You can ride on our vintage diesel train as well.

We are in a working railway yard so all kids must be accompanied by one adult who will be admitted FREE. Any additional adults should pay normal admission. Please make sure the kids wear old clothes (they WILL get dirty!) and sturdy shoes. Places are strictly limited so everyone gets a go at everything – pre-booking is essential and hurry… tickets are selling fast!

We suggest this activity is appropriate for kids aged 6-16 yrs.
