We loved the journey so much we went and did it twice. Amazing scenery, clean facilities, friendly people, we even saw quite a bit of wildlife including a red kite flying beside the train.

Had a fantastic day travelling on this railway. All the staff seemed very committed and really friendly. Got off at most stations and went walking. Shop and cafe were great as well.
