Being a model train enthusiast I was very excited(and I if I'm honest, slightly aroused) by the thought of riding on a little train.

This Railway has been on the go since I was a child and so good to see it is still up and running. Sad to hear that Mr Kerr is no longer there and he was a gem with the kids. Looking forward to seeing it stay for generations to come, and the price is just right.

I remember going on the train along the seafront when I was younger, and took my nephew here so that he can have the same fantastic memories that I have. It is one of the Must Do' s when in Arbroath

When I was a kid I remember being on the same train over 50 years ago!! A very endearing feature of sea side relaxing time in Arbroath is taking the grand children to the train. Cheap as chips run by volunteer's do not miss this your kid's will love it.

We visited with friends and their grandchildren. The first thing they wanted to do was go on the miniature railway.
