A must see attraction while in the area. We travelled from Metal castle to the terminus at Heatherslaw on this small gauge railway. The carriages drawn by a game little locomotive fuelled by coal and wood. Nothing to beat the smell emanating from the smokestack....More

This is a lovely place to visit. Lots to do with a Mill close by to also visit. We only visited the Train this time. Its wheelchair friendly, which is a bonus as not many Steam Trains are. Also good if you have a pushchair....More

What a lovely experience even though quite a small railway from Heatherslaw to Etal, it was very enjoyable very comfortable and even with limited mobility quite do able. A very pleasant ride by the river and not overpriced. Would definitely recommend for all ages.

Enjoyed a wonderful 4 mile ride through the countryside to Etal where we had a tour round Etal Castle owned by English Heritage before catching the train back and viewing the model railway display.

Large carpark. Friendly people. Interesting artefacts. Unfortunately rain stopped play. The nearby river was swollen with the unseasonable deluge and the trains couldn't run. Looks to be a great trip for all ages.

A delightful light railway which wends its way the fairly short distance between the two villages. Parking at Ford is at the station and there is a small museum. Combine a trip with a visit to the castle.

We'd passed the sign for Ford and Etal whilst heading elsewhere and found a leaflet about the place. It sounded like the perfect trip out for our senior doggy who has severe arthritis and uses wheels to get around. First stop was Hay Heavy Horse...More

A relaxing trip on the small train to Etal where we had lunch before returning.. a must for railway/ train enthusiasts. We combined this with a trip to the nearby Hays Farm Heavy Horse Centre.
