Only a short rail journey but an interesting guided walk round round the engine shed to make it a nice hour if you like steam trains. Very friendly and approachable staff. £6 reasonable and the society are looking to extend the track on the future.

The train trip was much shorter than expected however there was an informative tour of the engine and carriage sheds. Will be good when they extend the railway but they are doing their best to rejuvenate an old railway in a beautiful part of wales.

We really couldn't fault our trip to this lovely little railway. Although the journey on the train isn't very far, the guided tour adds to the experience massively. And there's Brio, if you have little children, which helps to keep them entertained. We couldn't fault the staff, who were all lovely. If you're going, look out for the ginger and... More

Following the advertised "your name on the front of the train" on their website, we organised for my Father to celebrate his 80th birthday at the Corris Railway. All the team made us feel so very welcome and went out of their way to make this experience a truly memorable one. My Father, as a keen steam train enthusiast, was... More

We went with daughter and grandchildren. The little one loved the steam train and to our surprise at the end of the journey when you usually get a talk about the railway a lovely lady called Sue came and gave the children their own tour. They saw various trains and the highlight was going into the signal box and pulling... More

The Corris Railway is a growing venture entirely run by volunteers. The current trips offered include a tour of the sheds where carriages are being built and restored and a visit to the museum explaining how these narrow gauge railways used to fit in with the slate mining industry and local travel. Well worth seeing

It's a short ride but worth it for the views and experience of real steam in a valley that took workers down to Machynlleth in its heyday. The work shed is especially interesting as well as the little museum in the main entrance.

Despite having been worked on for many years, the Corris railway is still very much in operational infancy. The line on which you can take a ride is only short, which is reflected fairly in the low ticket price, but the true value of this hidden treasure is in the people working there. They are all supremely dedicated and driven... More
