"The Enthusiast's Trail"

Welcome to the Midland Railway trail around The Assemblage which is aimed more at enthusiasts (railway or history).

There are 17 stops along the way which will take you a bit less than hour, depending on your own pace of course. Don't worry, you don't have to do it all at once and if you get distracted by a delicious beverage in the River Kitchen, that's fine.

On this trail we will take in some locomotive related matters, a bit of signalling, touch on social & welfare matters and even take a trip across to the north of Ireland.

Let's get started and head on into The Assemblage...
