A lovely little old fashioned place. My other half is a train modeller so this was a must. It is nicely done and friendly. Great for kids with a quiz to complete and fairies to count.

My husband and myself visited the model railway. It was back to our childhood. We were even given a quiz sheet to do as we went round. So much fun. The trains were exciting too. Good couple of hours spent here.
