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.

This is a short experience but quite pleasant! The people working here obviously care a lot about the history which made it interesting. It's a very slow train and very suitable for families.

Wonderful work done by the volunteers, parking on site and lovely friendly volunteers in the ticket shop. It is only a short ride on the train but a passionate tour given of the work completed so far and plans for the... More

Very small railway and not in the same league as the other better known narrow gauge railways. Much cheaper but also much shorter. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The description on the internet is very mis leading we thought it was a 50 min journey with an optional tour of the workshop but it wasn't the total time spent on the train was about 7 mins each way and the rest of the 50 mins was in fact a talk of the history of the railway
