FR & WHR services from Porthmadog this weekend!

This weekend sees the first service trains running in and out of the newly rebuilt Harbour Station in Porthmadog. 

Extensive redevelopment has taken place over the course of the last three winters and the £1.25m station is now ready for use. An island platform has been built, together with new signalling which  facilitates simultaneous arrivals and departures of Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland trains.

This Saturday morning at 0900 there will be a chance to see a Garratt and a Double Fairlie lined up alongside each other at Harbour Station before they depart with the first service trains to use the new station. Come and have your photograph taken with them on this very special occasion.

Spooner's will be open from 0830. Don't miss it.

A full gallery of photos and videos documenting the rebuilding work is available on our facebook page.
