It may be a little on the expensive side, but a trip on either railway promises a great day out. It is even better if you upgrade to first class!
Uk's longest NG railway. Take a return day trip from Porthmadog to Cearnarvon, or vice-versa. Journey through Snowdonia and much more besides. This is simply epic. Loo's and facilities on the trains - full journey is several hours in each direction and you can move between comfortable seats in closed carriages or the open summer coaches. It is possible to...

Another fantastic trip on the Halloween train - full of atmosphere, spooky characters, lovely food and fireworks. Even the engine hauling the train had spooky eyes! Thank you all so much! See you next year! We also had teenage children with us
