Very small railway and not in the same league as the other better known narrow gauge railways. Much cheaper but also much shorter. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The description on the internet is very mis leading we thought it was a 50 min journey with an optional tour of the workshop but it wasn't the total time spent on the train was about 7 mins each way and the rest of the 50 mins was in fact a talk of the history of the railway

While I have rated this as average, I really mean "excellent" - but have got to say "average", because there are so many "little trains" around, that are better resourced, and therefore better. It is not their fault. Considering it must be about the shortest narrow gauge railway in Wales - they are doing great. There is a museum, a... More

The Corris railway starts at the museum which has many artefacts from life on this slate line. The actual journey is quite short followed by a tour of the carriage and loco sheds. What comes across is the enthusiasm of the small number of volunteers who are trying to maintain and extend the line. Good luck to them!

This is a true volunteer railway. It has a small cafe and a museum (with hen hut!). The loco was immaculate and so were the replica carriages.

Very interesting history for such a small village. the village pub is very welocming and the locals are friendly. the Slaters Arms sells a small selection of good beers but the Pruple Moose at The Braich goch bunk House was the creamm of the crop.

the train ride is pretty short, but maybe thats a good thing, not being much into steam trains. My daughter loved it. There is also a little cafe and musem with a model railway and other bits and pieces. Great way to get out of the rain

Very friendly and interesting visit. Short train ride on replica loco and coaches, built onsite by volunteers. Talk on history on railway and shed visit. They have achieved a lot already, but it is very much work in progress.
