“Canny morning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Station nice and staff friendly. Train ride itself reasonable and our kids were free (6 month and a 2 year old) and they were given activity sheets to do. Nothing much to do at end of the line unless you want to take a walk and catch a later train back. The train was clean, we'll kept and buffet car good and reasonably priced. Would use it again.

“Fabulous experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Loved the journey on the train to Alston. Will be going back with our family. We'd been walking on the fells and got the train back to Alston. A lovely hot cup of tea in the buffet car was very welcome.
