Went on Wednesday. Very impressive. 2 huge halls packed with trains. The original 1964 Japanese Bullet train was great and so was the Mallard. My little lad loved it. We also went on the miniture railway.

I once met a man who flew Typhoons for the RAF in the second world war. He used to get to fly round France blowing up all manner of things. His favourite target was trains, he said it was a great feeling blowing the shite out them.
