    • Hi Nichola,

      It doesn’t sound like you had the best of days out.

      This event was one a few railway related events that we reported about in the run up to Christmas.

      Have you contacted the railway directly? I am sure they would welcome your feedback.

      Their contact details can be found on this page…
