“Fab day out”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

This is one of the best days out. We enjoyed the journey under both directions. Staff are great, trains are fantastic so enjoyable and the people who work on the railway are so enthusiastic it rubs off.

“Ideal attraction for a couple of hours”
Reviewed 13 August 2013 via mobile

This was an ideal attraction for my family (which includes a 10 year old boy and a 6 year old girl). You get a short 10 minute train ride on one of the big steam trains. Then you get a chance to ride on a mini-train ride, which both my kids loved, especially when it went through the tunnel. You get to look at a number of other trains, see a model railway, get to drive a train yourself and look at many other railway displays.

A great attraction if you are looking for something to do for a couple of hours. We went round Porthmadog afterwards which has loads of shops and places to eat. In the end it constituted towards a great day out.

“A great experience.”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

A very short journey but the visit to the workshops was good and having the chance to drive a diesel loco was great! This only happens on certain days but they have other special events. If you have children they will love the tiny miniatiure railway ride that is included.

“Nostalgic”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

We missed the weekend trip so as we were on holidays and moving to another destination we decided to take The Welsh Highland Railway on a short trip which took in the museum. John the driver was so interesting with his knowledge of the history of the area. The museum has some older steam engine and a history of the slate mines. well worth the trip which took over an hour in toll. when we returned we had refreshments in the olde world cafe.
