Details

Join us for a very special weekend celebrating the rich heritage of the Welsh Highland Railway - formed in 1922 and which (in 1923) completed the two-foot gauge rail link between the Ffestiniog Railway in Porthmadog and the former North Wales Narrow Gauge Railway line between Dinas and Rhyd Ddu.

The weekend will feature a varied timetable of historic trains, including locomotives and carriages that worked on the railway prior to its closure in 1937 - most notably, Hunslet 2-6-2T ‘Russell’, the sole surviving locomotive built for the original line.

It is intended that heritage trains will be running on the section of line between Minffordd, Porthmadog and Beddgelert, during the intervals between our regular passenger trains - providing an opportunity to experience the development of narrow-gauge railways over the past century.
