Although this scenic ride is powered by a fairly modern diesel locomotive the accomodation is in vintage carriages with plenty of architectural interest.
The depot facilities are adequate but can get a bit congested around boarding time but I was fortunate to be asked into the cab of the diesel during its run round by Nick the engineer. I must look like a railroad geek even though its not tattooed on my forehead, but welcomed the opportunity to see the diesel working and to chat about railroad interests.
I opted to ride inside the train which was a good choice as I spent much time talking to Mariah the dog (see picture) who is owned by one of the volunteers and enjoys her train rides.
Good facilities aboard the train and an excellent experience overall.
