Great little train. Round trip took about an hour. Also has smallest pub attraction. Views could be better on some areas of track as only could see grass like border mounds that blocked view, but all in all my kids and I enjoyed the visit.

Don't see why not. The seats are small so as long as its not a big dog it would be fine

Go on living social and you can purchase discount tickets. I wouldn't worry about being full they run back and forth all day long so if it was full you could hop on the next one.
