Alston may be a distance from most places but the journey there is well worth it. We visited this friendly little railway and loved every minute of it. We travelled behind a steam engine on this narrow gauge track in the sunshine, smelling the smoke and being transported back in time.
All the staff were friendly and informative and the cafe was also pleasant. You have to remember that these volunteer run attractions are working on a shoestring and although the toilets were clean, rising damp in these old buildings spoiled the paintwork. I mention this because someone grumbled to me on our visit who didn't understand!
