The Ffestiniog Railway is the world’s oldest narrow gauge railway with almost 200 years of history, taking you on a 13½-mile journey from the harbour in Porthmadog to the slate-quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. The line winding its way through the Snowdonia National Park to over 700 feet above sea level into the mountains. Through tranquil pastures and magnificent forests, past lakes, waterfalls, round tight bends clinging to the side of the mountain or tunnelling through it.

It was sentiments such as these written in the Ffestiniog Railway Travellers Guide, which originally drew me to the railway as a teenager eager to volunteer on the World Famous Ffestiniog Railway back in the late 1970’s.

The layout appears at exhibitions to support the team who work hard to maintain the real station, and to advertise the Ffestiniog Railway Society.
