A nicely preserved station with a decent tea room. There is a heritage display with a lot of information about Island railways, but the real highlight is a tour of the signal box. We were guided by John, a volunteer, who took time and care...More

Great little place to visit. Takes you back to the days when the railways ruled. A signal box tour is also available, or try the tea rooms. All run by voluntary staff.

Not certain but I don't see a problem. Probably not good in the signal box though.
