The train was real nice just to see views of the lake. We saw a lot of sheep and it was quite nice as it stopped at museums and had breaks so you could explore places . The views were very scenic and gorgeous which was very ideal for your money and a very nice stroll through the fields seeing... More

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.

Lovely train ride with two very enthusiastic children. Halloween hunt and the dressed up staff an added bonus. Well worth a visit.
