Good fun for all the family. Dog friendly and very well set out. About 20/30 minutes from Heatherslaw to Etal. Recommended.

My partner and I, a couple of miniature ride-on railway enthusiasts, decided to slip over the border on Sunday to experience this super fun light railway. The outward journey to Etal was very pleasant with plenty of opportunities to either sit back and relax or take loads of photos of the lovely scenery and / or local wildlife / farm animals. On the return journey we wondered what had caught the interest of a small herd of bullocks in a nearby field. The track was impassable due to a few tree branches having been blown down by the strong gusty winds but the train driver stopped the train and skillfully cleared the track. Unfortunately, the cattle were slightly spooked when the train's whistle sounded but they soon came back to watch the fun. In no time the track was cleared and we continued our journey back to Heatherslaw. A most enjoyable couple of hours can be spent in this area. Etal was lovely and there is plenty of time between trains for a spot of lunch or wee wander around the village before heading back.
