I was definitely unwanted here. I am Visually Impaired and asked so nicely. What a rude and Disciminatory Woman. The rest of Wales seems very good in museums with accessibility.

Took my 7 year old and 4 year old and my parents. On first appearances it looks a little run down but this is probably due to all time and money being spent getting the steam away up and running. It is run by volunteers...More

I would advise that they have their wellies. This railroad was laid low by the previous management, and the volunteers are working very hard to bring it back to their original vision. They are good people, and are very kind... More

Hi I am sorry that you did not have an enjoyable experience at the railway. I would just like to bring a few points to your attention. All of the people working there are all volunteers. We are re-building the railway with no financial help from anyone. We are building a team to put the railway back together. Several of us are thousands of pounds out of pocket. At present the railway is not open and was not supposed to be open for your visit. The person who booked you in did not take your telephone number so we could not contact you to say we were not open. As we were not open and we did not find out that you were coming until Sunday morning that left us with no time to do anything. The people that were there did not know they were working and only found out by accident. In the event we did as best we could with our limited funds and personel so as not to disappoint anyone. It is easy to critisize. We have picked up a local tourist attraction that was weeks away from going down the pan, is thousands of pounds in debt , needs a complete re-build and a group of us are working very hard to try and save it. Would you like to come and help us? Mac
