A message from the Directors of the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways
The events of the last month have been incredibly challenging for everyone – and our railways are no exception

No effort is being spared to ensure that our railways survive this crisis, so that we can all go on to enjoy them again in the years to come. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the Ffestiniog Railway Society, the Welsh Highland Railway Society and the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways Trust. These organisations have worked together to give every support to the Company. Whilst there remains much uncertainty and much work to do, their immediate and significant help is of tremendous value.

The response to our appeal to members has seen an outpouring of support, reminding us of just how much our railways mean to so many people. We will be sharing details of the appeal with members in more detail in forthcoming publications, but an amount well in excess of a hundred thousand pounds has been received. These donations are incredibly important at a time when our ability to earn money through running trains is seemingly many months away.

Thank you again to each and every one of our supporters.
