A low entry fee sees you enter a world of bygone steam engines and the like. Lots to see and read about. There are clean toilets, too. An interesting look back in time.

This is quaint but has an excellent collection of traditional steam farming and other engines, plus a variety of other historic items from the area, and a small model railway that children can ride on. Well worth a visit.

Should be heritage listed. I remember visiting back in the eighties when a couple of very crusty old men ran the joint. They must have been the original Pearns.
