Hidden jem, couple the train ride with the ferry over to Barmouth (enjoy food at Davy Jones locker) to ensure a full day out !

I was thoroughly disappointed, having gotten up early this morning, purposely checking and checking again the dates and times on the the fairbourne railway website, and driving for an hour and a half to get there, only to find that the railway was closed for the week!! :( Fairbourne may want to learn to update their website once in a while. Not impressed :( Only consolation was the fish and chip shop across the road.

Not very long, okay for a quick ride but fairly expensive compared to other trips. Better trips available nearby.

Well worth a visit, a lot of hardwork by volanteers goes into keeping this going, great place to visit staff very friendly, cafe available and good, views brilliant, then get ferry to Barmouth if you so wish. Great day out.
