A pleasant little railway, more suited to younger children than teenagers, and run completely by volunteers. The Brochure shows photos of steam locomotives, but there was only an old quarry diesel engine available, which was a bit disappointing as our Grandson is into steam engines,...More

We had no idea what to expect but had read they let you take dogs on the railway so we thought we'd give it a go. The place is fairly small and still in it's relative infancy, but I think that is when it can...More

I would advise that they have their wellies. This railroad was laid low by the previous management, and the volunteers are working very hard to bring it back to their original vision. They are good people, and are very kind... More
Hi I am sorry that you did not have an enjoyable experience at the railway. I would just like to bring a few points to your attention. All of the people working there are all volunteers. We are re-building the railway with no financial help from anyone. We are building a team to put the railway back together. Several of us are thousands of pounds out of pocket. At present the railway is not open and was not supposed to be open for your visit. The person who booked you in did not take your telephone number so we could not contact you to say we were not open. As we were not open and we did not find out that you were coming until Sunday morning that left us with no time to do anything. The people that were there did not know they were working and only found out by accident. In the event we did as best we could with our limited funds and personel so as not to disappoint anyone. It is easy to critisize. We have picked up a local tourist attraction that was weeks away from going down the pan, is thousands of pounds in debt , needs a complete re-build and a group of us are working very hard to try and save it. Would you like to come and help us? Mac
