About Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways
The Ffestiniog Railway takes you on a 13½-mile journey through history to the fascinating town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. The world's oldest steam engines, Prince and Palmerston, have been in regular use on the line for more than 150 years. Trains climb over 700 feet from sea level at Porthmadog through tranquil pastures and magnificent forests, past lakes and waterfalls, clinging to the side of the mountains.
The Welsh Highland is Snowdonia’s most spectacular railway. Trains start their 25 mile scenic journey from beneath the historic castle walls at Caernarfon. The comfortable trains offer freshly-cooked hot food and refreshments and climb from sea level to the foothills of Snowdon, before zig-zagging down the steep hillside to reach the picturesque village of Beddgelert, then through the stunning Aberglaslyn Pass - voted the most beautiful spot in the UK by the National Trust - and on to Porthmadog Harbour Station, where we have just spent over a million pounds in a major revamp to enhance passenger comfort and convenience.
Note: Dogs and Bicycles are welcome. A flat fare of £3.00 per animal or bicycle applies. However, dogs cannot be accommodated in the first-class portions of the trains.Read Less
