Your admission permits you to travel on as many trains as you want for the whole afternoon, and spend as long as you like in the museum and station areas.

Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes before a train if you wish to travel on any specific train. This is to give you time to purchase your tickets or have your online tickets checked, and board the train without hurrying.

Anyone arriving after 4pm can still browse the station and museum area and watch any trains until the doors close.

Closing time

The station doors will close at approximately 5pm. Don’t worry, you won’t get locked in!
