“A lovely little gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Wandered into this little shop and spent a few minutes looking at all the model railway products. Then we spotted there was a museum out the back. It cost £1.50 and it was well worth it. There was a great array of miniature displays, lots of working model railways that are mostly free to run apart from a few sections where you have to put in 20p or so. There was a quarter size model train as well. A great way to spend 30minutes or so!

Just a quick review of the Buffet Car Cafe which stands across the passenger footbridge at Betws-y-Coed railway station.

Lovely service, decent food, superb cuppa.

“Just a quick visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Just a quick visit , but it had a great little museum, and a very very good model shop with knowledgeable staff and not overpriced.
If you wanted for £1.50 you could get on the narrow gauge train and go for a ride. All in all a nice place for an hour.

Me and my neice often stop for a bite to eat and our 2 dogs enjoy watching the little trains go past. The shop is an alladins cave for modellers and the owner remembers us and is always pleased to see us , no visit to the area is complete without calling here , dont miss it!

“Little delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We took our Grandson here on July7th .We have been before and visited Betwys Coed many times. But this little gem is a must ,the little train is superb. young or old you will enjoying.
The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble, they aim to please and deserve a lot of credit for making little ones so welcome.
It's not over priced, far far better than rides we visited in Rhyl!! the Icecream cost more.
Do give it a whirl.
