Intermediate Station Development

Work is needed at intermediate stations on both railways. Beddgelert deserves the station facilities offered by a permanent, well-appointed building. The foundations are in place but work cannot continue until money becomes available.

One of the unique selling points of the 40 mile railway is that it doesn't simply offer a ride to the end of the line and back, but serves intermediate stations which are destinations in their own right.

Top of our list for improving intermediate stations is Beddgelert. During the construction phase of the railway, we had the foresight to build the foundations for a proper booking office, waiting room, shop and café, but the station still operates from temporary accommodation, several years after train services returned to this picturesque village in the heart of Snowdonia.
