  • Small but very nice. We only had a diesel rail car running when we visited but the kids were allowed to ride up front with the driver. Not much to see at the stops mind, great for walkers.
  • Lovely stations and line. All the volunteers work so hard to put on excellent events and to get the heritage traction working.
  • Well worth a visit.. brilliant...
  • Always enjoyed trips here well organised
  • Staff were fantastic, station is a lovely visit, and the Victorian Tea Room was cosy with open fire, and decent food.
