It's a fun evening although can drag on a bit but very entertaining. The fish and chips are passable but what makes it is the other passengers, from all walks who throw themselves into the mystery. Good value evening.

Visited with the family and friends. It was a very cold snowy day but we all enjoyed the ride between Eridge and Tunbridge Wells West. It has atmosphere but at the same time has the feel of a real working railway.

Such fun, the actor's were amazing, we laughed so much it was difficult to concentrate on the clues! The fish and chips were very good, especially considering there were 3 full coaches of us. An excellent evening all round.

The trains are interesting both steam and diesel. The ride could be longer. Parking a small problem. There are nice pubs to stop off for lunch along the way. High Rocks looked good, we will check it out next time.
