Is that the station at Butterley ? If so I’ve had a look at the website and it’s running a Lego weekend.

I remember the first time I visited the North Yorkshire Moors Railways and was staying over for the weekend with my girlfriend who later became my wife and it was early stages of courting. Anyway she doesn’t mind the Railways so we was looking forward at catching a steam train until we got onto the platform and saw Thomas ! It was a nightmare has we had paid all weekend on the line. My wife still finds it funny to this day.
