If in the area you must visit this narrow gauge railway. Fabulous views. Saw six buzzards this afternoon. Well maintained carriages and locos. All staff are very helpful and friendly. Wish I lived nearer!

Ten of us had an outing on this wonderful steam train. The engines are quite beautiful. We were like a group of children on a special treat. The trains are lovely and when we got to Abergyolwyn we had tea, cake or ice cream.
