The Ffestiniog Railway runs from Porthmadog on the coast to Blaenau Ffestiniog in the hills, passing through the spectacular scenery of the Snowdonia National Park. Many of our trains are steam hauled, some date back to Victorian times!
The railway is just under 14 miles long and the journey takes around 1 hour and 10 minutes each way. For younger children, a shorter journey may be more appropriate.
In just half an hour from Porthmadog or Blaenau Ffestiniog the train arrives at Tan Y Bwlch. Alight here for the nature trail to Llyn Mair picnic site.
The Welsh Highland Railway is Snowdonia's newest railway. Trains start a spectacular 25-mile scenic journey from beneath the castle walls at Caernarfon.
The trains, hauled by the world's most powerful narrow gauge steam locomotives, climb from sea level to over 650ft on the foothills of Snowdon, before zig-zagging dramatically down the steep hillside to reach Beddgelert, nestling in the heart of the National Park, then through the magnificent Aberglaslyn Pass and on to Porthmadog.
