We have organised a
"Sunday Steampunk Steam Train Social..." with the Ffestiniog Railway on the 8th May 2022.

Come along for a steam powered trip through the beautiful Welsh countryside in the Ffestiniog Railway's vintage carriages.

The Woodland Wanderer steam train service departs from Porthmadog at 09:45 and arrives at Tan-y-Bwlch, where it will stay for 1 hour. Plenty of time for photo opportunities posing with the locomotive and carriages, as well as the stunning nature trails. The café will of course be open in the meantime! The train will arrive back in Porthmadog at 12:15

There are 35 compartments on the train, each seating up to 6 per booking. Tickets can now be purchased from the Ffestiniog Railway booking site, click the 'Book Tickets' button to be directed. If you wish to change your bookings, you can do so by phoning Ffestiniog Railway at 01766 516024
