Diesel Fun

Diesel Fun

Details

Get yourselves down to the museum in half-term for unlimited rides on one of our classic diesel trains….

Explore the vintage carriages and enormous Goods Shed and check out some grand old locomotives under restoration in the shed.

You can even operate the signal box and climb into our big red double-decker bus.

There’s a brand new, train-themed children’s play ground right next to the field so you can bring a picnic or treat yourselves to lunch or a cream tea in our beautiful railway carriage cafe.

**For families with children aged 10 and over, we’ll be running Escape Rooms which is a great activity for young and old. Incarcerated in the Victorian Waiting Rooms, you have just one hour to solve the clues and puzzles and ‘escape the room’… Pre-booking is essential so to find out more and book an Escape Room, please visit our website here: >> https://www.earm.co.uk/escape-room/
