Customer Reviews

Wonderful time on the Salopian Express.

Fantastic value and treat like royalty. Nick our Steward was kind, considerate, knowledgeable and had a smile on his face from first thing in the morning until last thing at night. We were encouraged to take photos, go on the footplate talk to the driver and footplate staff (who were fabulous and friendly very down to earth). We took our own picnic but there were plenty of opportunities to obtain food and drink from the buffet car. Drinks were very reasonably priced too. Clean, tidy and comfortable facilities. I cannot wait to go on our next trip with them. Thank you West Coast Railways for making me so happy.

An Incredible Day Out.

Booked first class seats and was so glad, it was a wonderful experience. All the staff are lovely and seem genuinely happy at their work. Tea and coffee were included for the journey and were very welcome and a buffet car is also available for snacks and drinks. The scenery is outstanding. Passengers were advised that there was a one hour cruise available from Mallaig which was timed perfectly to get you back for the return train journey and this too was really enjoyable. I wish I could thank each member of staff on the train and cruise personally for making our day out so enjoyable. If you ever get the opportunity to do the train journey, don't hesitate, you will have a super time.

Truly is the Best Train Trip in the World.

This is such a great day out fantastic scenery from start to finish. And when the Glenfinnan viaduct comes up it's goosebumps on goosebumps such a fantastic experience. Well worth the money.
