New and Old Adventures


We are pleased to welcome visiting locomotive, 'Fiji' which is with us for the season with kind permission from the Statfold Barn Railway. This new locomotive will run four shuttle trains to Pont Croesor and there will also be a naming ceremony for the locomotive. This will be the first time the locomotive will haul passenger trains and there will be a small supplement for the first shuttle and the first shuttle as a named locomotive.

We will also be welcoming back some old friends - volunteers from the very early days without whom, the railway would not be as it is today. They will be doing a photographic re-enactment at Boston Lodge with Simplex ‘Mary Ann’ after which there will be Simplex hauled shuttles from Porthmadog to Minffordd with opportunities to photograph the old -‘Mary Ann’ with the new - ‘Fiji’.
