As part of the museum, Bressingham still have working steam trains and we were able t go on them!
We went on the Fen line train first.
We had to wait on the platform for the drivers to check the brakes.
We then had a ride on the gallopers, which too are operated using steam.
They were great fun!
We looked in the old locomotive shed and were able to look at some old engines. We were even allowed to go inside one and fit where the driver would have sat. We saw where they would have put the coal, to make the fire which helped make the steam yo power the train. It was dark inside there.
It started to rain a little and so, we had an indoor picnic.
After lunch, we had a tide on the garden line. This was a little train and we were had to spot teddy bears on our way. The most teddy bears spotted was 22!
We saw an old fire engine and enjoyed sitting on this and ringing the bell!
We also saw old vehicles including old cars, coach, dustbin lorry and then old trains used to sort the mail.
We loved the miniature railway too.
We will make models of steam trains and remind ourselves how the trains work using steam.
