F&WHR enhances Summer timetable
Due to the popularity of services covering the new section of the Welsh Highland Railway opened in April, F&WHR management have evaluated options for enhancing the Summer timetable to offer more opportunities for return journeys over the whole line from both Caernarfon and Porthmadog.

"It is highly unusual to contemplate significant changes to the timetable once the season is underway," says General Manager Paul Lewin, "But traffic figures show a clear preference for services which cover the whole railway rather than those terminating at Pont Croesor.

"We are continually working to improve the experience offered to our customers and the addition of extra through services gives passengers more choice and offers more opportunities to savour the unique experience of watching two major heritage railways operating an intensive service from the same station at Porthmadog."

The most significant enhancement is an improved service on Fridays and Sundays in July and August, when two Porthmadog - Pont Croesor shuttle services will connect with Caernarfon trains, offering a choice of three full-line return trips a day from both Porthmadog and Caernarfon.

And from July 19 until September 8, an additional shuttle service will operate from Pont Croesor to Porthmadog on most weekdays, allowing passengers a choice of two return times from Caernarfon.

The existing bus links between Pont Croesor, Porthmadog and Caernarfon will continue to operate as advertised (details here).
