Our driver was Paul, he was an excellent driver and very funny at times. There was 27 on our tour and all had to get in one carriage of the Puffing Billy, so that wasnt quite so comfortable. Also we had to get off the train half way through the trip, so that was disappointing as well. Generally enjoyed the trip but could have been better.

The driver Steve was very accommodating. He picked us up very early and allowed us to get off and have some breakfast while he picked up the other travelers. Very considerate. He also gave very thorough and entertaining commentary about the city as we drove through it. He also let us know about toilets wherever we went which I appreciated.

A great friendly informative trip! Very organised even though it is a 5 hour trip full of activities it didn’t feel rushed at all. Mark our driver was brilliant he knew everything about the ranges. The puffing billy sadly banned sitting on the side of the train due to an accident 18 months ago so do not go expecting this. It does not change the trip at all still amazing views.
