The length of track is quite short, and the scenery nothing of real note, but the train has a variety of carriages which show how standards have changed over the years. The main depot has the workshops where restoration is in-progress and additional carriages can...More

We visited the steam train whilst on holiday. We had a all round ticket which i thought once we had finishdd our trip was expensive for what you get. We have been on cheaper steam trains + had a longer trip for our money.
