1. Ahh this sound idyllic doesn’t it? -and so it is. You have probably just described the perfect day out for thousands of people. We live on the line- not literally of course- and still rush to the nearest window or run to the top of the garden in order to enjoy the image of
    a) the train itself
    b) relish the sense of excitement and anticipation that the lucky passengers would be experiencing.
    And yes the carriages are themselves a work of art. You of course visited when the trees are a beautiful fresh green, or even still bare depending on the species.
    Further on in the year you would find a different scene altogether with full bloom, blushing hedgerows and an abundance of various wildlife.
    Then the truly spectacular Autumn glory, it just has to be seen to be believed.
    The few winter trains that run-mainly ‘specials’ eg The Santa Train- little gifts,fresh mince pies and delicious hot toddies, are a delightfully nostalgic way to set off the festive season.
    So glad you enjoyed-but then again, who wouldn’t?

    Thanks for you comments Heledd, we really enjoyed it – we’ve been promising ourselves that we’d give it a go as soon as the line opened all the way through Snowdonia.
