We popped in here whilst at a music festival at Pontins for a bit of a break from four days of relentless hardcore electronic music, and it turned out to be a great move. It's a lovely little place and appears to be a real labour of love as it's immaculately kept. We arrived just as they closed the main... More

This is a treat for young and old. I have nothing but admiration for its owners who have painstakingly created a work of art for us all to enjoy. The intricate detail of the models is inspiring.

Really great for young kids. We took my two year old nephew and he would have stayed all day. Unfortunately it was raining when we went but we still had a good day. Staff were very friendly and really helpful. Would recommend it for anyone with little guys or girls who love trains.

It's great to see that attractions like this still exist, thanks to the hard work and dedication of the staff. A great way to spend an hour, or more, for little or big kids alike!
