Our locomotives get very hot - so please do not touch them, and keep off the railway tracks! Please read the Train Riding Rules at the Ticket Office before boarding the trains. We offer clean toilet facilities, including disabled access. A wheelchair accessible carriage is available on request. Printed timetables are available from the ticket office for you to take home.

The car park fields close at 5pm. We do not accept responsibility for any loss or damage to vehicles or contents.

In return for this concession, we expect you to buy tickets for the trains and to buy refreshments. We serve hot and cold beverages, ice cream and other refreshments at very reasonable prices. Parents must stay with their children at all times and closely supervise them.
Please take all your party litter home as we do not have a bin lorry collection.
