Take 100 families with autistic children. Invite them to a steam railway. Add in some huge Brio and Tomy train sets. Arrange special visits to the engine shed and the locomotive footplate. Provide a reserved carriage on the train. What do you get?

Lots of happy children sharing their special interest, and lots of relaxed parents.

Thanks to Ruth Rowatt and all the staff and volunteers at the Bluebell Railway - we'll be back.

Also huge thanks to TJ Vile Samantha Morris Karen Tulloch and Martin Bell for their help in running the event.

You realise how few opportunities there are for autistic children and their families when a family drives 2 hours from Colchester to Sutton for an Engine Shed event! 😦 ...

We drove from Bishops Stortford in Hertfordshire to The Bluebell Railway in East Sussex today but it's been totally worth it. My boys were living their best life at today's event! Thank you.

It's a fair trek from Devon too but we will plan a holiday around it one day 🤣

There is one in chingford north London that could save you a bunch of time
