Dear Anne, Unfortunately we cannot understand how this has happened. October is our quietest time of the season. We have a back up service where we put an extra train on the last return. If you send us your Return tickets to our address we will fully refund you: Old German Tunnels, Bottom of Corbiere Walk, St. Aubin. Regards, Paul... More

This pretty little road train takes you from the centre of St. Helier to the harbour of St. Aubin along the sea front and the on-board commentary gives you many fascinating insights to the passing town and landscape. However the ride is slow, harsh and exposed and many times more expensive than a comfortable bus and disappointingly does not allow... More

If your in the bay area this is definitely worth going on. It last about 40mins and takes you to the other end of the bay. The driver is very friendly. We took our 3 month old on. There is room to put a pram on and the trains have a commentary of what is around you.

I went on my own but the commentary was amazing and the views incredible. St Aubin was beautiful and worth a walk around. Went for a cream tea. Would definitely recommend for adults wanting to know more about the history of the island.

Train runs between St Helier and St Aubins takes about 35 mins each way. You get a commentary on route which relays aspects of Jersey history and also points out landmarks along the way. You arrive in St Aubins and have an hour and half there before next train back that is fine if there was something to do in... More

Great views, very interesting audio commentry on this 3 mile (seems like more) each way, scenic tour. The seats are the most comfortable I have ever experienced in this type of attraction, even the knee room seems a fraction better too! A good way to spend a couple of hours on a 'sunny windless day' as there is not much... More

Le Petit Train is great fun. We caught it in St Aubins and rode along the esplanade into the middle of St Helier, where we had time to explore and shop before catching the train back again. The staff are lovely, the commentary is really informative with a few funny bits, and the train takes you through parts of St... More

This train is great goes from St Helier to St Aubins in 35minutes single journey the cost is £8.50 per adult return cheaper for children. The town of St Aubins worth a visit. You can have a stop in St Aubins and then get train later as runs regularly. Would definitely say worth a trip when in Jersey.
