This place was recommended to us to visit as we have young kids. Yes it's a bit shabby but it's run voluntarily and relies on donations to continue. The main shed houses countless Hornby trains & tracks. We had 3 or 4 trains turned on...More

Popped here on a windy Sunday afternoon. I'm a train driver so enjoyed all the train related things. It's all a bit tired and ramshackle but then it is free. We had a little train ride which was fun.
