This was a lovely friendly little railway. We had a short ride and then on the way back stopped at Gelert's Farm. The museum was very child orientated, and interactive with steps up onto the footplate on some of the locus. The steam train even...More

During this month, the railway only provides a short 10m out and back trip along it's usual route. Priced at £12.50/ adult this includes a hot drink and biscuits. To be honest I don't think it worth it. The scenery does not compensate for the...More

Travelled on the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway today, what a bargain! For £8.50 each we got a return trip on a narrow gauge train, not a long journey but most impressive, when we got to the end of the line we detrained and went to...More

Most reviewers get mixed up with the bigger railway between Porthmadog and Caernarfon. The railway is excellent but short in length. It is nice to have a tour of the loco shed. Look forward to the future when you can change trains at Pen-y-Mount to...More

A trip on this recently reinstated railway is a definate 'yes' for anyone visiting North Wales. It's an engineering masterpiece and shows what a group of dedicated volunteers can actually achieve when faced with sheds load of red tape and doubters. We travelled first class...More

If you have an hour to kill, this is a great little railway to visit. It is short enough to maintain children's attention with much to interest everyone. Children are involved when the engine runs round the train at the far terminus; there is a...More
