From Our Editors

Blowing billowing puffs of antique steam into the Essex countryside, Colne Valley Railway fuels imaginations with an insight into steam and diesel locomotive innovation straight from the past. The period railway park features full-sized steam and diesel trains, and garden and miniature railways, while an exhibition centre follows the history of the junction for eager learners and experts alike.They can cater for school groups with educational services, and they also hand the wheel to eager conductors with steam-driving courses.

I left it until the last weekend the voucher was available to use as I was busy with other work. On the day I had planned to go, there was a bad thunder storm. I knew it wasn't a good idea to go. I telephoned the Colne Valley Railway to ask if because of bad weather conditions, they would extend the dates available to use the voucher. They never got back to me.

Train journey too short. Model railway looked unkempt with grass overgrown. Entrance fee appeared high for what was available

The public toilets are pretty awful. The staff clearly like working there and are passionate about their jobs but not about the cleanliness of the toilets. We also spent a very long time on the diesel train for a very short journey but the steam train experience made up for it.

Great day out and run by people who clearly enjoy what they do. Seemingly not motivated by profit which is great

Volunteers are friendly and happy to spend time answering questions Train journey a waste of time looks like a scrap-yard of old trains. Could possibly be set out better Could have made more of the PO train, lots of potential for kids to use and learn.
