I take my 2 young daughters - one aged 5 and the youngest 2 on this every month if we can and they love it. The people running it are always friendly and welcoming. The Halloween ride they put on it always brilliant too

We try and get down to the railway a few times a year for the miniature train rides and to support this local company. From getting the tickets to ride and the enthusiasm of the drivers this is a fab low cost experience for all ages. If you are local to Basingstoke and havn't tried it you really should.

Despite being relatively late on this Sunday afternoon; we were warmly welcomed and so were able to make a number of pleasant and swift circuits; hauled by each of the two scale replica locos in steam, a black BR liveried B1 and green painted 10 coupled 9F “Evening Star”. A nice end to the weekend on a positive note.

If you are looking for a fun way to pass an hour or so it is always worth a visit when the rides are running. Kids love it but it is more fun to watch the fathers little faces light up at the sight of these miniature models hauling what appears to be an impossible amount of people around the... More
