We Love a Happy Train Passenger

  • This is a must see and do. Enjoyed every second of it. Like stepping back in time. Great for all ages and abilities. Cool gift shop with great items.

  • A stunning view. Those who have difficulty walking up the stairs to the train can join this adventure. It is the only steam train I have ever encountered that has a lift to get EVERYONE on the train!!!

  • I rode this train as a little girl and I got to take my own children on it! Beautiful views of the valley accompanied with music and fun facts about the railway history. I definitely recommend the open air cabin in the summer. Our whole family had a great time! Staff is super friendly!

  • If you like antique trains… you just have to get on one of these. It will bring you back 100 years.

    The staff there are all very knowledgeable and we loved the story behind the railway. We even saw a few bears (and they will tell you when they spot them). Overall it is a must for any train enthusiasts like myself.
