If you have never been on a miniature steam train, then you are missing out on one of Traffords hidden family fun gems. If your child is anything like ours, then they will love a ride around the park on one of these steam locomotives. Anything that sounds like chu-chu or has anything to do with Thomas the tank engine gets a big smile in our house.
Located in Abbotsfield park, The Urmston and District Model Engineer Society is widely regarded as one of the premier Model Engineering Societies in the England. They have a gathering of all the Model engineer societies in the park in summer, so head on down for steam fuelled fun and festivities. Manchester Host Families will be holding an event there this summer….date TBC.
