About Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway

The historic Ffestiniog Railway climbs from sea level to over 700ft on its journey through the mountainous Snowdonia National Park and round the UK’s only railway spiral to the 'slate capital' of Blaenau Ffestiniog.

The recently reopened Welsh Highland Railway is the UK's longest narrow gauge railway - an epic 25 mile mountain adventure through the alpine scenery of the Aberglaslyn Pass to the historic castle town of Caernarfon.
