The Ffestiniog Railway

Ffestiniog Railway ranks as Wales's finest narrow-gauge rail line, twisting and looping 650 ft from the Wharf at Porthmadog to the slate mines at Blaenau Ffestiniog, thirteen miles away.
 
Over the last fifty years, the Ffestiniog Railway has become a leader in railway preservation and is now 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 undisturbed by the sights and sounds of modern life.
