After the success of our event last year, we are holding a “Join the F&WHR Volunteers” weekend, when you can visit us on Saturday 21st or Sunday 22nd April and we will take you behind the scenes, show you what you can do and to answer all of your questions. There will be something that appeals to everyone and if you are not sure, we will let you have a go…

Ex Penrhyn Quarry mainline class Hunslet Blanche has been absent from operations since May 2016 when she was dismantled for the obligatory 10 year boiler inspection and retube. With help at Young Volunteers Week at the beginning of August, Blanche is beginning to look like a loco again.

Okay, so not a railway tweet but a nice blog piece on the legend of Gelert! Why not ride on the Welsh Highland Railway and alight at Beddgelert, one of the most beautiful villages in #Snowdonia, and visit Gelert’s grave for yourself! @festrail @BeddgelertPast https://t.co/tKnmObUvjE— The Narrow Gauge Blog (@NarrowGaugeBlog) March 11, 2019
We loved this. Beyer Peacock congratulating themselves on the continued demand for their 30-year old design. If only they knew they would still be in service after 99 years they would probably burst with pride. @festrail pic.twitter.com/dAT5NkM2Gu— Robert Humm & Co (@RHummBooks) March 7, 2019

We are looking for an enthusiastic supervisor/cook to run our popular café at Tan-y Bwlch-Station. This is an exciting opportunity to increase the potential of the café, located in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park.
