Ffestiniog Railway

< >

The oldest independent railway company in the world of any gauge, the Ffestiniog is best known of the Welsh narrow gauge lines. It has been running steam-hauled passenger service from Porthmaodg to Blaenau Ffestiniog since the 1860's, although it took a number of years to restore the full line after the second world war.

The railway boasts an impressive locomotive roster including three Double Fairlie engines - the only line in the world still operating these fascinating beasts. The railway's Boston Lodge engineering works is still building new locomotives as well as restoring historical engines and keeping the line's existing historical stock running.
