Sadly due to the announcement of further lockdowns from 28th December this is now cancelled

Despite not running our public service, we are offering two complimentary trains for members and their families on the Ffestiniog Railway. These services will run on the 28th December and the 1st January.

The train will depart Harbour Station at 11:00 and will be steam hauled and double headed. We will pause at Tan-y-Bwlch before continuing to Dduallt where the locos will top and tail to enable us to run around the deviation so we can catch a glimpse of the new south tunnel portal before returning to Tan-y-Bwlch, with a half hour stop for coffee and then back to Harbour Station. If tunnel portals aren’t your thing, you are welcome to alight at Tan-y-Bwlch on the outward journey for a walk and a leisurely lunch before re-joining the train.

To join us on the train you will need to book in advance as space is strictly limited and is being sold on a compartment basis. Once you have booked a compartment, you may fill it with other people as long as they are in your family bubble. Compartments are free of charge to both Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Society members and are sold on a ‘first come first served’ basis. Very limited first class is available as Carriage 152 has been added into the train.

Otherwise, we are using our heritage stock so it will be chilly! Make sure you dress accordingly and bring a flask.

This is also a chance to trial a new on line ticket system. Don’t worry about the cost of the ticket shown. Just be prepared to enter your membership number to get your 100% discount. Bookings will available from 11:00 on Tuesday 15th December. Member tickets for these services can be booked via the following link – https://www.festrail.co.uk/members-yuletide-specials/ . Please book on line as our booking office is mostly closed.

If you do have problems, please email bookingoffice@ffwhr.com
