Welsh Highland Railway

Welsh Highland Railway


Following the success of these trains last year, we are pleased to confirm their return in 2019. Enjoy a fascinating guided tour from Caernarfon to Rhyd Ddu in historic carriages, with stops for photographs along the way...

Arrive at Caernarfon station 10:15 - 10:30 to meet your host. Train departs at 11:15. Start your day from the stunning new 'gateway' station at Caernarfon, but immediately 'step back in time' as you board your authentic heritage train for a journey through the history of the Welsh Highland Railway.

First stop will be at Dinas, followed by Tryfan Junction, where the beautiful station building has been lovingly restored by volunteers. This is your chance to see inside and learn more about this busy little quarry line. There will also be some unusual photo opportunities and a mug of station master's tea or coffee.
Our train continues to Rhyd Ddu. Along the way, you will come across more former stations and railway buildings that mostly go un-noticed from passing trains - but, on this occasion, there will be time to stop and see these from the train window.

Arriving at Rhyd Ddu, the locomotive will run round and take on water, while you will be served a packed lunch and have a chance to stretch your legs before the return to Caernarfon - arrival 15:30.
