September 15th - 17th - Welsh Highland Railway - Super Power - "Welsh Highland Stars"
The annual Welsh Highland Railway Super Power weekends are always worth a visit, but this year's three-day event taking place from September 15-17 promises to be special.
As is normal for this weekend, there will be an intensive service operating over the three days with many additional departures over and above the standard Welsh Highland service trains. We have set a precedent for unique workings in previous years and we have no intention of stopping now!
There will be passenger, vintage, freight and mixed trains running throughout the weekend, and consequently many favourites from the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland fleet of locomotives will be in use for people to enjoy.
The Snowdonia National Park through which the railway runs is well known for its stunning and varied landscapes which of course can be admired from the train during daylight hours, but are you aware that Wales now leads the world in the percentage of its territory enjoying protected status for its night skies?
Snowdonia National Park is now an International Dark Sky Reserve, only the tenth place in the world to gain this status, and it is our intention to celebrate this achievement at the gala with a number of special opportunities for visitors to enjoy.
Tickets will be available to purchase online in the very near future, and more detailed information regarding the special attractions will be published here in due course.
