Spent a very pleasant afternoon on the train recently in May. Great scenery and commentary and nicely restored train. Well worth the money and time.

It was a perfect winter's day and the views were stunning. The guide let us know what we were approaching and the history around the scenic area.

What a lovely little gem of a train ride, filled in a cold afternoon winding through the countryside. Lovely scenery and nice commentary along the way explaining about the area.
