Great little miniature railway But with seats in the Carriages a good size for Adults. Long ride for just £1.50. It made the long walk to the Beach much much shorter for we over sixties.

We have taken two trips on the train with our grandchildren aged 3 and 1 and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The lady taking the money was lovely and very accommodating. Would definitely ride again on another outing.

It's a narrow gauge railway and the carriages are small, guess if the pushchair folds small enough it might fit, I don't know if there is a charge or if they let you travel with it when really busy though, sorry
