Hello

Didnt even know this place existed (sorry :) ) may i ask, is this place worth a visit? Im mainly a Train fan at heart but carry many a fond memory of the Leyland Olympians, Atlanteans, & Nationals from Trent's old fleet in Derby.

Any info is greatly appreciated :)

It is very many years since I was last there, but I would suggest it is very much worth a visit! One of these days I will get back there with my daughter and show her how life used to be in Manchester "when I were a lad".

Thanks for the info, looks like its best to get to Victoria Station on one of their event days & enjoy a heritage shuttle! Cheers :)

I think its worth a visit I have been myself on a few occasions and also with my children who also loved it and the volunteers are always friendly as well.

Plenty of variety in the exhibits especially my own personal favourite (although I am biased here) the 1901 Manchester tram belonging to the MTMS that run the Heaton Park Tramway.

I went there with my parents and I enjoyed it. I also enjoyed the prototype Metrolink tram. I think it's worth a visit, although it might be worth going on a day when they do a heritage shuttle from Victoria.

Thankyou for the reply's :) having watched the video i shall definately make a visit, & probably on an event day. Nowadays the only buses i catch are the modern single deck offerings of Trent's current fleet. Which have all the creature comforts but a 0% feel good factor :)

Organisations like this a truly wonderful & i salute those who give their time for others to enjoy! :)
