Why not combine your Visit to the Gauge Museum with a Ride on our Historic Railway?

What better way to round off your learning experience than to feel for yourself the power of a steam locomotive as you travel through the beautiful Somerset countryside?


The Railway offers a range of possible routes on our line, allowing you to tailor your visit in terms of time and expense.
