Brilliant experience for our 2.5 year old. The train ride is less than ten minutes but the interactive museum and enthusiasm of the volunteers made this one of the best train experiences we have had in North Wales. Excellent that the funds will go to the upkeep of this for generations to come to learn the history of narrow gauge. The shop is well stocked with Thomas the tank toys and a wide range of train related goodies for gifts for children or adult enthusiasts. Really well priced. Brilliant lunch and afternoon cakes at Russell Cafe too where we watched the 'big' trains. We will be back.

What a wonderful day out! We paid for the 1st class experience and it was all we had hoped for. Amazing Pullman coach, fantastic picnic basket on the way out and afternoon tea on the way back, knowledgable, friendly and wonderfully smart staff……the scenery wasn’t too bad either! Plenty of time to check out Porthmadog in the middle of the day and absolutely loads of photo opportunities. I’d give it more than 5 stars if I could. A huge thank you to all of the staff on the WHR for making our day so enjoyable (and giving us far too much to eat!!)

A hidden gem and much more fun and better value than its rival railway (the Festiniog and Welsh Highland). The train ride itself is short but very interesting. The museum in the engine shed was great. You can go in several cabs, learn about the history of the railway and slate industry and even includes a shunting game! The bonus was a miniature railway ride. Really helpful staff, excellent shop with wide range of railwayana. We (and children) loved it.

Although the trip is short, you get the chance to walk in the sheds and see and touch all sorts of railway items. They have some incredible stock and even a splendid miniature railway. Staff are extremely pleasant too. Highly recommended
