We are local, & incorporated a visit to the steam railway as part of a circular walk in the area. It was a real treat. The ride on the train was fun. The facilities are good & we had a picnic in the picnic area. There’s a mini rail track that children can have a ride on too. I’d recommend for anyone local for sure!

Had a fantastic time at Telford Steam Railway yesterday ... bought a guard experience for my dad and I was his guest / photographer! From start to finish, this was a thoroughly enjoyable few hours - all volunteers at TSR were super friendly and helpful, ensuring that dad had a really memorable experience. Thanks to all, from cafe staff to director.

We visited the Telford Steam Railway travelling from 3 hours away in December 2019 as a family of 5 (Children aged 10,7 and 5) for the Polar Express... and I am glad we did. We booked premium tickets and were very happy with our choice, our seats were in a lovely carriage and we all received a beautiful Polar Express Mug to take home, every passenger also receives an excellent quality silver bell from Father Christmas. Our children were gripped for the entire train ride, there was always something happening to keep their attention. For me the most telling factor was the interest my 10 year old son, who is on the edge of not beleiving, showed. The park and ride service was incredibly easy to use and although there was quite a big queue the buses were frequent so the wait wasnt long at all. Father Christmas himself... I am a Father Christmas snob... but this one, it was him, the real Father Christmas, real beard, good interation lovely outfit. 10/10 We were sat beside a retired couple who made the journey alone, they were having the best time and made our evening all the more pleasurable. Just a couple of niggles from me, I think the experience would have benefitted from being 10-15 minutes longer, The conductor who had to hole punch everyones tickerts whilst attentive and in character seemed very stressed and kept looking around as if he was checking he had enough time. The same for Father Christmas. The kids didnt notice but as parents I wanted it to slow down just a fraction. Also the "magician" entertaining before the trains cheapened the experience in my opinion... would have been happy to have a big screen showing a section of the movie. Its unlikely we will return but only because we like to try new things, but I have an will recemmond you to others.
