“Day Out With Thomas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

We went here yesterday.
Good points

* Thomas had his own carriage 'Clarabel' for people to ride in. This made it very real for my little one.

* The' Fat Controller' was very entertaining and did not mind having his picture taken or my daughter chatting to him.

* The puppet show was great.

* The staff in the 'imagination station' staff were really nice.

*The scenery is beautiful

*The station is lovely.

Bad Points

* The staff who were giving out the wristbands to go in (and later on directing people) were quite off handed.

*The shop staff were not much better, seemed quite put out.

*The shop does not have much variety.

Overall was a nice day out.

“Interesting Railway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is yet another presevered railway that is well worth a visit. Situated on the River Dee it has fantastic views along the journey. This was my first visit to this railway and was very impressed and am looking forward to going back again. Nice start to our holiday

What a wonderful experience. The smell of the steam and the views are great. All the volunteers are really enthusiastic which makes for a wonderful day out.

“Stunning scenery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

The Llangollen to Carrog journey along the River Dee is lovely. If you like steam trains, then this is a must. The scenery is stunning. It's lovely for children who haven't experienced steam train travel before, and great for the older generation in bringing back childhood memories. Had a short stop in Carrog tearoom, some tasty bara brith and a cup of tea, then back to Llangollen. A lovely afternoon out!

“Never fails to impress”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Another lovely journey on the railway despite it being unable to get to Carrog due to a land slip.
Such friendly staff on board.
If you have never been on board, make sure you do!
It is very nostalgic.
