Youngsters were able to enjoy train rides with Thomas the Tank Engine and Percy when they visited Quainton Railway Centre over the Easter weekend.

As well as rides on the main trains, there were miniature versions of Thomas and Percy for younger visitors to enjoy as well.

One of the popular inside attractions at the centre on a chilly but largely dry day was the LNWR Cornwall.
