Fantastic little railway, short trip but amazing scenery and interesting museum. We visited with a 14 and 6 year old and both really enjoyed it. Staff we’re so friendly and pleasant. Well worth a visit

Just a brilliant journey with fantastic scenery, a cold beer and a bacon roll. What more do you want?

A pleasant way to spend an hour or so. Athough without the track length of its neighbours, still very much worth a visit if in the area. Very friendly and great interation with children which was the standout feature.
