The kids and adults enjoyed rides on the various trains (steam and electric) through the lovely rural setting. This is such a great day out and the best kept secret. A must for all, especially wee ones obsessed with trains! Great value too.

Thank you for your review, we are please you had a good day out, that is always what we try to achieve.
Thanks for coming.
First visit to site3 miles north methven in perthshire. Has regular open steam days and is a family friendly place with cafe. Trains rides and rides on model steam tractors available thoughout day. Worth a visit.
Visited this time on an ordinary open day - not a special visit and it was great. Crowded but trains running so regularly that a huge queue disapeared in minutes. The track is great fun and excellent for all ages - including children!!
