Important: These trains can only be boarded at Porthmadog (Ffestiniog Railway) or Caernarfon (Welsh Highland Railway), and offer a round trip to Tan y Bwlch or Beddgelert respectively. All tickets must be pre-booked online. The safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers has been our principal concern during the planning process for reopening our services. We have introduced measures and procedures throughout the railway to maintain the safety of all, which means that travelling with us is a slightly different experience.

If you want to get off a train at one of our Request Stops – please tell the Guard before you get on the train, to ensure you are seated in the right carriage.

If you want to get on a train at one of our Request Stops – please give a clear signal to the engine driver as the train comes into sight (hold out your arm, just like catching a bus).

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.
