Middy steam locomotives are often joined by Heritage Railway Association award winning Fowler Shredded Wheat shunter giving shunting demonstrations. This pretty little engine may be diesel powered, but it has a copper capped exhaust chimney which gives it a very steam like effect.
The Middy, together with added attractions, make a fascinating visit for families and rail fans alike. Opening times are from 10.30 to 16.30. Prices are £12.00 adults, £6.00 children under 16, families (2 + 2) £30.00, concessions (over 65) £10.00.
