Train runs from 11am-5pm or 10am-4pm in winter. It goes as far as tall bridge, roughly 13km’s. Good for family, single, disabled and or anyone. Prices are reasonable, they also have a coffee shop

This was a lovely way to pass an hour. It was a misty and rainy morning but the train has plastic windows so it was perfect. A leisurely trip along the river with markers for the children to find enroute. The trip takes approx 40-50mins.

Went on this trip with 3 children under 6 it was fabulous. The staff were absolutely fantastic can't believe they are volunteers what a great way to give your time, bringing back the old railway carriage.I would thoroughly recommend it. Children loved it.
