“FUNicular”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

I loved this railway, I like the engineering bit and its better than the climb up that hill. I am always interested in this sort of thing the history and the engineering are a plus for me; less so for my wife but it is a short trip so all was well

“Fantastic views”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Visited on a Sunday morning and had to wait for the railway to open at 12 noon.
Paid £1.20p for the return trip which was good value.Would have been £1.20 for a single one way trip anyway.!

“save your legs!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Olde worlde fascination. Both my lads were mesmerised and the views...wow! It got even better when they saw how many steps they would have climbed. It also came to the rescue of my wife who is diabetic and would have never got to the top for the chocolate needed. The ice-cream parlour was shut and the coffee shop looked down their noses at us, perhaps they need to be more aware of type one diabetics having an hypo(they are not drunk just unaware of their surroundings). Anyway the railway came to the rescue. Only reason it is not 5 stars is because the lady operator at the top was like those in the coffee shop. Otherwise brill!

“Railway closed”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Unfortunately visited on a Sunday morning and railway does not open until 12pm so walked up the stairs to the top of Bridgnorth. Whilst there walked around the Bridgnorth Castle ruins which are very interesting and the gardens and church grounds. Beautiful views over Bridgnorth and a great walk.

“Walk back in time on steam railway”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We liked the fact that there was a wedding party with a carriage
joined onto our normal carriages. Also children from the local school had been out for the day on the train and were dressed
in everything from boiler suits to smart railways uniforms depending on the work they had undertaken on the railway
for the day.
