Historic engine Merddin Emrys and train in stunning Ffestiniog scenery

The Ffestiniog Railway was founded to carry slate to Porthmadog from the quarries at Blaenau Ffestiniog. Now the little steam trains carry visitors through the
stunning scenery of the Snowdonia National Park. A return trip takes around 3 hours and shorter journeys to the halfway station are also available. A rover ticket gives you the opportunity to make the most of your day .Ffestiniog Railway and Welsh Highland Railway trains now share a newly-rebuilt Harbour Station at Porthmadog, enabling (should time allow) a 40-mile journey by narrow gauge steam train all the way from Caernarfon to Blaenau Ffestiniog.
