Took a ride on this train just after visiting the museum, having been dumped by the thieving Zipworld pirates earlier in the day. I can't remember what my wife and I paid but I remember it being extremely reasonable. The lovely narrow-guage steam train takes you all along the lake side with a stop or two, before bringing you back... More

We took the lake railway trip because we couldn't get tickets for the mountain railway, but still did so with an open mind and looked forward to an interesting ride with nice views. The trip did not start well with my wife and I being crowded into a tiny carriage compartment with small excited children who were soon leaning over... More

We couldn't get seats on the Snowdon train so this was an alternative. It was the Halloween trip and the fact the train was being driven by a giant spider really added to our experience. We did the Halloween hunt and the children (all 6 of them) got a prize of a Screme Egg, which was a nice touch. Thanks... More

The Railway runs along the shore of Lake Padarn with wonderful views of Snowdon and it's mountain railway. Although small it gives a 4 mile authentic steam train experience and is vg value.

A short trip, half and hour, along the lake and back. What could be better? It rained all the way but the trip was still worth it just to see the youngsters in the lake getting even wetter.

Great for young children. We had been to the Snowdon Mountain Railway earlier. Lake Railway offers a exciting experience for young children. Overal lovely trip around the lake. Fantastic views. Stop and enjoy picnic lunch. National Slate Museum stop along the way. Highly recommended for young families.
