Heritage Transport Museum has finally finished restoration work on a 1950s steam engine. They unveiled an adorably rustic 1953 model on the weekend and is now letting visitors go down the memory lane as the engine fires up. 

A Family That Hangs Together...

There’s a certain romance that comes with steely old steam engines puffing out clouds of smoke. Don’t you think? It’s sweet in a very picture book kind of way where station masters handed out candies and the whistle of the engines sent sleepy towns into an a ecstatic frenzy. So if you’ve been thinking of a family outing but just putting it off because everyone has such varied interests, this might work pretty well. 

You can get clicked in the backdrop {think retro, Lootera-type photos} or munch on snacks at the Museum canteen as the children get a fascinating insight into the bygone era of steam engines.

The newest addition though is just one charming aspect of this award-winning museum. We suggest you make a day of it with the audio visual guides and explore everything at leisure – you’ll be surprised at how beautifully this place is done up.

So, We're Saying...
