At the Swindon and Cricklade Steam Railway ride upon a fully functioning locomotive. The railway's passenger line offers a round trip of just over 4 miles, ideal jaunt length for kids of all ages! The site also houses a selection of historic rolling stock and steam engines so your genuine chuff heads will not be disappointed and your amateur trainspotters have plenty to learn if they've a mind to.
The exciting new extension to Taw Valley Station (and work in progress aiming at Mouldon Hill park) plus ongoing developments to the catering and hospitality sides mean it's a comfier and more comprehensive day out than ever before!

Anyone with a train lover in the family is in the right place! I have two train loving children and we come here quite a lot! The Steam trains are my favourite. There are three pick up/drop off stops with Blunsdon being the main platform. Blunsdon has a waiting room with a wooden toy train set up, the whistle-stop café sells drinks, cakes, chocolate bars and light meals and lunches (it is a tad expensive but the station is a charity so all profit goes towards the upkeep of the railway) a gift shop and a small museum. There is a pick up station at Mouldon Hill Country Park. Quickest and easiest access is next to the Tawny owl pub. There's an underpass directly adjacent to the car park, walk under it and out the other side then entrance to station is almost directly on your right. You can get on and off here, go to the pub or country park then hop back on the train to get back to blunsdon! A ticket gets you access all day, hop on/off for as long as the station is open. They do lots of special events and "kids for a quid" is always a popular and much less expensive way to visit!Gothmummi
