Naturally we saw a lot of train cars when we were there. On our way to the train ride we admired some of the nicer cars.

The train ride was pretty cheap, 50p per person. The ride wasn't very long but was very fun, with plenty of things to see along the way.

Right by the train ride is the playground. Jacob and Lucy insisted on visiting. They had a good time.

We went back in the building and had a snack. I tried the very yummy Yorkshire ginger cake.

Then we saw a collection of royal rail cars. Several samples from the past 100 years were on display, including Queen Mary's Salon. Queen Mary used the car throughout the 1900s. Wanting everything to be up to date, she had modern furniture and electric conveniences like fans and radiators added.

King Edward's Salon also features many modern conveniences. Used in the early 1900s, he had his train car modeled after his royal yacht. He even included a smoking room.

It was a fun visit with guests from the States.
