Had heard about the Ratty before, but never visited. Weather was superb for our visit, and the little locos give a brisk and enjoyable ride through superb countryside. Staff were pleasant, helpful but understandably reluctant to get too involved in conversations. Really

Great to see that you enjoyed your first visit to the Ratty. It sounds as if you had the weather for it. There really is something special about our engines galloping up the hills to take you to the foot of Englands highest mountains. Thank you for taking the time to post your review and we will certainly look forward to welcoming you back to Ravenglass in the future. Kind regards Stuart @ R&ER

Thank you for your kind and lovely words. You are right a lot of thought has been put into how the railway functions at the moment to ensure people do feel comfortable when visiting us. Our skilled joiner has spent many hours designing and constructing the screens that have been fitted to nearly all the coaches that our trains use, there are over 80 screens so it has not been a small task. Thank you for taking time to post these words and I shall certainly make sure your praise is shared with our paid and voluntary staff. We will look forward to welcoming you back here to Ravenglass again soon! Kind regards Stuart @ R&ER
