We had a fantastic day out on the Jacobite Steam Train. We booked our tickets way in advance to ensure we could travel, I would recommend doing the same as some who tried to book on the day were disappointed. We were sat in standard class which has better views than the Harry Potter carriages as you have larger windows and can see out of both sides of the train. On the tables was a map of the train journey and estimated time of arrival/departure and when we were going to go over the viaduct, map of Mallaig and a list of recommended restaurants. I would recommend buying the £1 map as it shows you journey so you can track where you are and its a great souvenir to show friends. The scenery was spectacular and well worth the money. Mallaig was gorgeous and there is plenty of time to have lunch and a wonder round the harbour.
Just don't wait till Glenfinnan to use the toilet at the station as you'll spend your whole time there queuing instead of looking around. The toilet on the train is fine.
