Visited with my son and his grandparents. Wonderful and beautiful experience. The weather was great on the day of our visit too. The staff running are a mine of information (pun oops).

This quaint little steam train, wonderfully restored along with the coaches is very special. It provides a wonderful vista of the incredible landscape. Must do.
