We were looking forward to the visit with our grandson, however when we arrived we were disappointed to find there wasn't a steam engine running . The place is rather run down and the ride was not very long . At best you would stay about 1 hour as there is nothing else there. The pub next door is much more pleasant ,!!!!!

We were disappointed that it wasn’t a steam engine as advertised & the view from the train was mainly a hedgerow.

On the day the actual steam engine wasn’t working which was quite disappointing- we went as a group of 9 and couldn’t all sit together which again was disappointing, my son got bored on the train after a little while into the journey and we hardly got a chance to take pictures outside the platform - on a positive note outside of the railway it’s very scenic

Carriages were dirty and didn’t smell pleasant although admittedly it was a hot day. My 5 year old granddaughter found it slow and boring as the trip consisted of a short run up and down the shore length of track. I appreciate that a great deal of restoration money is required to complete the works but a good cleanup of the train and whole site would be more app

Enjoyable little ride on a steam train. There isn’t a huge amount of track, so train went back and forth a couple of times. Nice little gift shop and a few other engines to see. The volunteer staff happy to chat and answer any questions. Well worth the small price we paid.

Took 5 year old grandson and he enjoyed it. Some might be disappointed that the steam engine wasn't working.

Need to accept that probably won't actually get to ride on a steam train. The diesel train needs a good clean especially the Windows. The journey is very short. However, it's a quirky visit.
