See the steam trains from the golden age of the Great Western Railway. There are steam engines in the original engine shed and a recreation of Brunel's broad gauge railway with a replica of the 'Fire Fly" locomotive dating from 1840. On Steamdays the engines come to life with rides in the 1930s carriages along a typical country branch line and there is a regular programme of special events throughout the year including 'Day Out with Thomas'.
