The event, which runs from 1pm to 5pm, will also demonstrations of the station’s pumping engines, the RNLI’s boating pond, children’s rides on a fire engine and steam train trips.

 

Visitors can round off their day out with a bag of chips from the museum’s coal-fired vintage chip van.

 

Admission costs £3.50 for adults, and is free for accompanied children.
