We have travelled many heritage lines and thought that this was one of the best. Horrific weather did not dampen our spirits and we thoroughly enjoyed riding the full line and back. I can imagine on hot days stopping off and going to one of the beaches enroute or just hanging our in Minehead.

A well run line that is the longest steam railway in the UK. Plenty of stops if you want to see anywhere in particular, Blue Anchor / Watchet / Bishops Lynyeard are good. Rolling stock is authentic of early British Railways times and buffet or dining services are available.

Had an excellent day travelling the steam railway with first class volunteers operating it. It was a lovely hot sunny day and the friendly helped make my birthday treat a pleasurable one. There's a buffet coach with cream teas and cakes and other snacks

Great really good to do a good day out, even if you do not go on the train nice to have a look at the steam engines and good photos the station is kind of victoria looking which is really good as very different to a modern looking station, the shop is full of gifts
