The happy train is great! My friend and I went on the smaller train trip and it was great. The staff were so friendly and we were extremely satisfied with our visit! Also we were extremely thankful for the lovely staff to find my friend's bracelet on the train and keep it safe in the train hut for her!!!

The Lady at the counter was very rude to our daughter - she told her to sit in the middle which she didn't want to.

Offers 3 trips of differing lengths of time. We chose the middle one at 70 minutes and it was a great way of seeing the local coastline and town.
