6th - Fairbourne

The Fairbourne - ex playground of the popstar keyboard player John Ellerton (he who nearly built a miniature railway on the WHR trackbed).
We had a nice trip - the people were friendly, it's good for kids (G scale railway and small animal display), plus a top cafe and shop. The engine variety is good (Darjeeling, NWNG, L+B etc) and trains run regularly. However the line is somewhat boring for 90% of its length - mainly looking at sea defences and a road, before the final 10% which is lovely - a cracking view of Barmouth and the estuary. We got the observation coach but it suffered from too few windows and got a bit warm to say the least!
Overall 58%
