Locked up tight on a Sunday and not much could be seen from the car park. With Volunteers I understand that is is difficult to ensure people on deck/ on station but disappointing when not able to access.

Even if you are not a train buff, this is well worth a visit from a historical point of view and just a chance to meet some of the locals.
