Lived this little railway. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The museum is accessible, as is the café, but the train ride is only accessible as long as you can get out of your wheelchair and into the small carriage. They seem to have mainly small steam trains, with both closed and open air carriages.

One of the best little railways I have been on. There was a great view of the coast and all the attractions during the journey. It runs from just outside the Haven park to the leisure centre, where you can pick up the road train if you want, or just walk along the lovely prom.

Took my daughter on the train, it was a lovely unique experience and the journey/ride was longer than expected. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

The railway was lovely, the publicity and sales arrangements left much to be desired. It was hard to find out if the railway was running and what the times were.

Very popular with children and pensioners who are no longer a le to walk the distance !! It's a little steam train and journey can be either one way or return - handy for the very young, the less mobile and the very old !!! Well worth a visit.

The atmosphere is superb and the Smallest Pub on the... More
