Details

Soak up the atmosphere and feast your eyes on some great classic cars, vintage motorbikes and modern head turners, we have over one hundred and fifty classic vehicles at this great family day out.

You can ride on steam trains and vintage buses all day long for FREE and our friends from the Braintree & Halstead will have their model railway layouts open for viewing

The Restoration Shed will be open for a ‘behind the scenes’ view and our friendly volunteers are always happy to chat to visitors about our on-going restoration projects.

You’re welcome to bring a picnic to eat on the field and the kids can enjoy the fenced off play area. The Chappel Station Cafe will be open serving breakfast, light lunches, delicious home-made cakes and cream teas in our beautiful vintage dining car.
