Where to find some of Birmingham and the West Midlands’ best train based activities.
Trains have provided a source of fascination for generations of children (and adults, for that matter.)

Whatever the reason, trains remain a favourite activity for kids and adults alike, and here is where you can find train activities in and around Birmingham.
