Enjoyed a couple of hours going along the gorge with superb views. All run by friendly and helpful volunteers. Make sure you get a seat on the right hand side of the train going up for the best scenery. Super time. : )

Its a very short trip of about 15 minutes down and 15 minutes back and a 20 minute wait for the train to turn around. It was great fun but not alot to see. Worth doing.

The volunteer staff are great, the train trip itself was wonderful through mountainous terrain and the souvenirs are not the same uninteresting ones usually offered. We loved it!
