Ffestiniog Railway, Porthmadog

The Ffestiniog Railway takes you on a 13½-mile journey from the harbour in Porthmadog to the slate-quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Our historic trains climb over 700 feet from sea level into the mountains through tranquil pastures and magnificent forests, past lakes and waterfalls, round tight bends (even a complete spiral) clinging to the side of the mountain or tunnelling through it. Discover why engineers from around the world visited the Ffestiniog to see how it should be done.

The line is perhaps best-known for its fleet of unique Double Fairlie locomotives, built by the railway's own engineers in the oldest railway workshops in use anywhere in the world.

Over the last fifty years, the Ffestiniog Railway has become one of Wales’ top tourist attractions. Visitors to the railway can enjoy the outstanding natural beauty of Snowdonia as they pass through areas inaccessible by road and undisturbed by the sights and sounds of modern life. At Porthmadog, the line connects with the Welsh Highland Railway and trains to Beddgelert and Caernarfon.
