Been on the train once for dinner when I worked in Aviemore. Been meaning to do the trip again in the summer daytime. Wasn't disappointed took the first class option £18 each which included tea/coffee and shortbread. Good supporting literature and the staff were all wonderful - especially the guard and the fat controller. With reference to previous reviews yes I did think that a commentary would be good, but it would mean wiring up carriages and spoiling the original look. The staff were happy to answer any questions and clearly enjoy what they do! I will be joining up as a member to help fund the stretch to Grantown. Great hands on trip saw kids getting access to guards can, foot plate at the engine and pics with the team. Great morning out!
