In the event of heavy snowfall or icy conditions our trains may not be able to run exactly as timetabled. please check with the booking office (01766 516024) before travelling.

Our trains are all steam hauled, however diesel engines might need to be used at short notice if the rostered steam locomotive is unavailable. Every effort will be made to run to timetable but the Ffestiniog Railway does not guarantee advertised connections or the advertised traction in the event of breakdown or any other obstruction of service.

You can download printable copies of our leaflets and posters by visiting our Publications page.
