Great display of old locos in what was probably the old engine shed. Some outside too but most in poor state of repair - like many of the other buildings. Finally went in to see the display of old signalling equipment, staff uniforms and maps...More

Iconic place with old railway machines and related stuff. I suggest the visit at some Saturdays from spring to autumn where there is also a collectors' fair, you can see model railways and children can ride around with a little dusty train.
