    Visited on Sunday and what a superb event . Five engines , seven traction engines , goods trains bringing stone and timber down the line which were unloaded and then crushed and rolled for the road and the wood cut into planks all using vintage equipment.

    Lots of family groups in attendance and enjoying the event
