Ffestiniog railway

The Ffestiniog Railway is the Oldest Independent Railway Company in the World. On the trains you can travel by steam through the spectacular scenery of the Snowdonia National Park, between Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Today the Company also operates trains on its sister railway, the Welsh Highland Railway, between Caernarfon and Rhyd Ddu - the halfway point of a major project to re-open the old line through to Porthmadog.

Enjoy a day on the footplate of one of these hard working locomotives. You will share the footplate with one other guest and take turns to drive and fire. The day starts at 7.30am, although guests need not arrive till 9.15am if they wish. The day is normally completed by 5.00pm following the disposal of the locomotive.
