Be sure to remember that the entrance to the railway is through the cafe at the BR station! Once on the train an excellent tour of the engine shed but, so much potential to do more to relay the Barry scrapyard story, it really could and should be developed further.

It was a lovely day out with my grandchildren. It all started when we arrived at the station. There was a display from the world war. The person there was very informative and took a lot of time explaining things to my five year old grandson. My younger grandson, aged two loved the train journey. Yet again, the conductor was very good with the children and very informative about the trains.

Really good time :-) ride on the diesel, tour of the shed and a little ride in the cabin of a steam train then back on the diesel to the station where there was a world war two thing going on. Really was good :-)

An excellant day out for train enthusiasts young & old. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon on the train. Staff cannot do enough to help you & go out of their way to make your journey/experience of the Tourist Railway memorable. We loved the War Musuem also which was highly informative and a step back in time to see Barry as it was during the war. A brilliant day alround - thank you 😊

In my opinion you have to be a train enthusiast to be able to enjoy this trip I think especially in relation to visiting the train sheds. Although it was informative and my grandson and his friends enjoyed themselves.
