What a great experience for the whole family. The round trip itself takes around 50 mins. Not very expensive at all. Staff and conductor friendly. Car parking on premises. The scenery you go through is beautiful. Highly recommend.

Enjoyed a couple of hours going along the gorge with superb views. All run by friendly and helpful volunteers. Make sure you get a seat on the right hand side of the train going up for the best scenery. Super time. : )
