Our visit to Alderney was planned to coincide with an operating day of the Alderney RAILWAY. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff made for an interesting visit. Its amazing to think that the railway still exists with its limited operating days. Thanks for an informative afternoon.

Visiting Alderney weekends? Then you have to have a ride on this well run little railway. A Diesel engine coupled to two ex London Underground coaches will take you for a unique ride to Mannez quarry. Delightful scenery en route and a chance to visit...More

Visited the railroad with friends. Unfortunately the weather was awful so the views from the train could have been better. It was quite surreal travelling in an old Northern Line underground carriage! It travels a lot slower than its old home! Friendly staff but not...More
