Inside, visitors will find an an attractive Ticket Hall and also houses a museum signal box, souvenir shop.

The buffet hall and museum are found on Platform 1. At the end of platform 2 is a replica water crane that would have served steam trains in past times. Just past the bridge is a water tower, built in M&GN style. On platform 3 is a wooden-bodied carriage which contains interactive chldrens' activities relevant to railway history. There are plans for further restoration of other parts of the station to the original form.
