We were lucky enough to be invited along to the NRM yesterday for their half term event "Train for the Tracks" - we had a great time exploring lots of different railway jobs, but first we tried an authentic railway man's lunch...
After a little rest, we went to have a look at the rest of the events. Firstly we had a look at the amazing engines, this mainly involved running round after our two year old. Weep.
We found the British Transport Police stand and practised dressing up which the boys loved..
We dressed up as station guards and had great fun waving flags then had a play with a huge Chuggington play area where we made ramps and had races.
Aside from what we did, there was also the opportunity to climb aboard steam engines, build bridges, and lots more! Children were loving it and we enjoyed seeing our children happy and enthusiastic - well worth a visit!

All thoughts are my own though we were given lunch and free parking.
