Excellent ploughman's lunch with great service. We really enjoyed our trip up and down the line. Very good value for money as you are able to take additional journeys up and down the line.

My daughter and I took my train-mad grandson on this railway on Good Friday. He was enthralled by it all. It was very busy, but the staff were so helpful. The only disadvantage was the wet weather.

We were staying locally on the way to see friends and thought we would check out this railway. Its beautiful. Charming. The volunteers were so friendly and welcoming. Wonderful café on the station and refreshments available on the train.
