Author's Review

The United Kingdom has many Steam Railways still in operation, and all are just as spectacular as the other. But one that really does stand out and leave you with some long lasting memories, is the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway. I had visited here on many occasions prior to my recent visit in the summer of 2012. I had to visit again because I owe it to you to ensure that this attraction is still delivering the great service you deserve. I was not disappointed! The station ticket master was the same and dressed just like he would have been 100 years ago! That's why this railway is so special, they transport you back a century and make you believe that you could be standing on that platform in 1912 not 2012. Even the station dog was there and has been there for years! Not a hundred years though! Now that would have been special!
