Welsh Highland Railway
Starting from the historic town of Caernarfon, the Welsh
Highland Railway is North Wales' newest narrow-gauge railway and
the UK's longest heritage line, operating the world's most
powerful narrow gauge steam locomotives.
The magnificent scenery of the Snowdonia National Park is best
experienced from one of these trains as you sit back and enjoy
the view during the 25 mile journey. The railway runs past the
foot of Snowdon, to the picture postcard village of Beddgelert,
through the beautiful Aberglaslyn Pass and on to Porthmadog.
Trains operate daily during July and August and most days of the
week from April to June and in September and October. A full
return trip takes around five hours, but shorter journeys to
other stations are also available. Leave the car behind and
experience a comfortable ride in high-quality carriages with
on-train refreshments and freshly-cooked food served at your
seat. All trains also offer luxury first class travel in Pullman
carriages at a small supplement.
At Porthmadog, the railway shares its station with the
world-famous Ffestiniog Railway with trains to Tan y Bwlch and
Blaenau Ffestiniog, where connections can be made with the Conwy
Valley line for onward travel to the North Wales coast.
