About us

This 15 inch narrow-gauge railway was once an old branch line which has since been extensively redeveloped to become an all-weather attraction, hugely popular with adults and children alike.
We hold regular special events such as the Easter Eggspress, Day Out With Thomas (Thomas the Tank Engine), Steam Gala's, Halloween Ghost Trains and Santa Specials.

In addition to the steam trains there's a well-stocked shop, cafe, outdoor play areas and miniature train ride around the duck pond
