There is always plenty to do when you visit us.

We have a unique collection of locomotives, many in running order. On running days we will use one or more of these on our trains.

Our collection of rolling stock is particularly interesting for its coverage of narrow gauge and, particularly, timber tramways.

We also have a wide range of machinery from the last hundred years. Our expert volunteers run some of these rare heritage items on special event days.

As our museum focus is on the timber industry, we have some interesting logging equipment on display.

Our station is the centrepiece of our collection of buildings, but it is not alone in being of heritage interest. The goods shed and other buildings provide a look back in time to the early twentieth century.

We regularly run special events. Our timetable lists planned events and you can find out more about some of the keynote ones here, particularly our annual Heritage Machinery Festival to be held on 5th/6th October 2024.

We’d love you to spend time with us, but there’s lots to do nearby as well. This page has some more details.

We’ve put some short videos on the site so that, even if we’re not operating when you visit, you can experience a little of the excitement of running days as well as seeing behind the scenes.
