A Christmas present from our son and his family which was delayed in taking for various reasons-but what a lovely present it was.  The railway is run by volunteers and what a wonderful job they do-they could make a great deal of money by acting as consultants for the FTSE 100 COMPANIES teaching them what customer care is all about!!

We were booked in for lunch on the train and it was excellent-beautifully laid out tables, service by lads from Trinity College Carmarthen who were excellent, orchestrated by the Maitre'D who was brilliant-so relaxed,nothing was too much trouble.

The journey itself was only on a track of approx 5 miles stopping at 2 stations but it is through beautiful countryside in the Towy Valley.Interesting to watch the railway manoeuvres at either end of line looping around the rain to change the direction of the engine and to talk to the staff who knowledgeable about the history and running of the line way back.

Thanks Gwili for a great day-may you go from success to success.
