The Mountain Prince with Welsh Pony

The second season of COVID19 friendly services is well underway on the Ffestiniog Railway.

There are two primary offerings :

  • The Woodland Wanderer – this runs from Porthmadog to Tan y Bwlch, with time to visit to the tea room or go for a walk
  • The Mountain Prince – this runs from Porthmadog to Dduallt and onto the unique spiral, returning to Tan y Bwlch to give time for a visit to the team room or a walk

Both these services are utilising a some of the vintage carriages and may be hauled by any selection of Englands Prince, Palmerston or Welsh Pony, Double Fairlies David Lloyd George or Merddin Emrys, with Blanche operating frequently also.

Here are a few scenes of chasing Welsh Pony with its 1950s style vintage set:
