Reviews

We had an absolutely fabulous time on the train journey and the fact that there was only 38 passengers made it more enjoyable. Rudi, the Train Manager couldn't have been more helpful, and of course all the train staff were absolutely fantastic and couldn't do enough for you. Nothing was too much trouble to them and always with a happy smile
