Ooh we do love something a little different and these photos, taken by visitor Stuart Hall, really show a totally different side to our heritage railway. We have a huge amount of rolling stock and railway memorabilia here, and some is in newly-restored, pristine condition, but obviously there are other items in need of a little TLC and some waiting in the restoration queue. We love that Stuart has seen the beauty within!

If you’ve taken down the decorations and have decided your synthetic Christmas tree is in need of an upgrade, we can help you recycle it! We would love to receive any artificial trees you no longer need! They don’t have to be in pristine condition but so long as they can still be put together and can stand up, we’ll take them ready to decorate the museum next Christmas. Please bring them along anytime. If we are closed, simply leave them by the pedestrian gate. Thank you!

So that’s it… the last Panto Express train has left the station and Father Christmas has gone back to the North Pole. What an amazing few weeks it has been! So many families have been in to see Santa and the Panto; so many happy little faces! Thank you so much to all our volunteers who give up their time to make this event happen, and to all our staff, to the Panto Team and to all the elves and to Father Christmas himself; and of course to all of our happy and cheerful visitors - the news ones who have visited for the first time to those of you who keep coming back again and again; you make it all worthwhile! See you again soon! Merry Christmas everyone!
