The ride's not far short of 10 miles- all done at a gentle pace. Perfect for admiring the views. And of course the cafe' at the top if you fancy some quick refreshment...

The Train generally runs every day from mid-late march up until late October- but I'm not sure how often outside of these months.
Though I was up the the Summit on December 22nd and sure enough, I was greeted by the train...!

Simon, those photos look great, so clear and colourful. Unfortunately i don't think i can still buy that little camera now. Any idea what the updates are like for taking good shots? I am still looking for a small camera. Have been thinking of the tz18 but also the canon you mentioned too.

Maybe consider the TZ25..? It uses the same sensor as the FZ-150,has a good zoom,fast auto-focus,burst mode and works reasonably well in lower light...
