October 9th-11th : Bygones Weekend

2020 has not turned out the way any of us would ever have expected - and it has required us to continually review our plans for train services and events...

As a result, we came to the decision that it is impossible for us to run our Victorian Vintage Weekend in the style we have all become used to – so, instead, we are replacing it with a simpler, more Covid-aware ‘Bygones’ weekend. This will feature many of the familiar aspects of our usual vintage weekends, in particular our heritage trains, passenger and goods – but with seats on all trains being pre-booked, in the same fashion as our current service trains to Tan-y-Bwlch.

Please Note: this will not be a costumed event, there will be no sideshows / stalls, strict Covid-19 compliant measures will be in place (please bring your face masks etc), access to main stations will be limited to ticket holders – but we will be doing our very best to lay on a weekend that maximises the enjoyment of our railway’s rich heritage as we bring the past to life, 2020 fashion!

There will be no “Spotter’s Guide” produced this year, however you will find below the full timetables for the event together with an information sheet containing details of how to book.

These information sheets are provided for your guidance, but please remember that fewer seats than normal will be available due to social-distancing requirements.

To book seats on ANY of the ‘Bygones Weekend’ trains, you must phone the Booking Office on 01766 516024.

Tickets will go on sale at 0900hrs on Friday September 18th.
