The Welsh Highland Railway (Porthmadog) is a small, family-friendly heritage railway and interactive attraction. Each train ride includes a guided tour of the restoration shed, where you can climb on steam and diesel locomotives and find out how they work.

Fares for all-day tickets are only £5.50 (adult), £3.00 (child), £4.50 (senior) and £15.00 (family or group, 2+2). Our railway book and souvenir shop is one of the best in the UK ­ and our atmospheric period café serves home-cooked food, specializing in children's meals and special diets.

Step back into the unhurried world of an early twentieth century narrow gauge railway, and enjoy the authentic experience ­ in coaches often over 100 years old ­ in trains hauled by vintage diesel or coal-fired steam locomotives. Special events ­ some for children, and some for everyone ­ occur throughout the year. The Traeth Mawr Extension is planned to open during 2007
