Attractions - Puffin Train & Film Site
Situated in the Scenic Maberly Loop
The Puffin Train
Elliston (Maberly) doesn’t just have puffins it has a train load of them! The Puffin Train is quite a sight that you will not see anywhere else. It is located at Puffin Ventures Craft Shop, at Maberly, a short distance past the well-known Puffin Viewing Site.
The train is a large mock-up from the fictional puffin railroad featuring the Puffin Express. These cartoon like train cars have both puffin staff and passengers with a caboose around the corner of the craft shop. Is there any room left on the Puffin Express? Yes there is and it makes for an excellent photo opportunity. The train has an empty place in one of the train cars that makes a great spot to include yourself as a passenger on this extraordinary spectacle. It is a must see for the visitor that desires a fun, light hearted souvenir photo and it’s free! If you like puffins it is surely something worth looking at!
While taking in this unusual attraction be sure to view the beautiful scenery in and around Maberly where both the train and craft shop are located. It is well worth the two minute drive past the puffin site.
Don’t leave this area saying you saw the puffins but missed the Puffin Train!
