Took my two year old who is obsessed with trains and he loved it, I highly recommend it. Unfortunately the journey doesn't take very long but it has a little museum attached.

The venue hosted a Steampunk Market and fabulous combination! The rolling stock and static displays are both interesting and informative . A steam train ride a bonus.
