June 15th : The 'Snowdonian Limited'
The 'Snowdonian Limited' is a repeat of our popular April train, again offering an 80 mile round trip over the whole railway with a variety of motive power. Tickets for the trains running in 2019 are now available. Please note that all details are subject to change.
The journey will cover the full length of both the Welsh Highland and Ffestiniog Railways in one day. To add more interest to this scenic journey, the Snowdonian will be hauled by a variety of motive power, the details of which are yet to be confirmed. Don't leave it too late to reserve your seat as this is a popular event and places will be limited.
