View our extensive collection of steam and diesel locos and other items of rolling stock, including a static demonstration goods train.
Visit our Museum which houses items of narrow gauge rolling stock, photographic displays and railway memorabilia, including a number of signal box nameboards. View our working model steam railway, and there is even a model railway for the children to play with.
