Event Details

With the February half-term breakbehind us, we will be running twotrains a day, four days a week throughout March…nnThese trains will run from Harbour Station, Porthmadog to Hafod y Llyn and return, providing the opportunity to enjoya scenic, steam-hauled 10-mile round trip across reclaimed pastures,passing ancient sea cliffs and the meandering Glaslyn river along the way.nnAs the train steams awayfrom Porthmadog, you cross the harbour bridge and over the main road. You then wind your way through the streets and houses of Porthmadog, over a crossing with the Cambrian Coast main line and head out into the wide valley of the Afon Glaslyn. The train makes its way along an embankment built in the early1800s and across green pastures reclaimed from the sea.nnCrossing the Afon Glaslyn at Pont Croesor, the train steams towards the encircling mountains before swinging left and heading into the narrowing reaches of the Glaslyn Valley. Following the crossing of two more rivers, the train arrives at remote Hafod y Llyn nestling at the foot of wooded slopes which rise above the train. **nnOnce the locomotivehas uncoupled and run round to theother end of the train, your journey resumes in the opposite direction, giving the opportunity to look for things that you did not seeon the way to Hafod y Lyn…nn** Please Note – due to there being extremely limited access at Hafod yLlyn, passengers can only join / leave the train at Porthmadog.nnSo,why not come and enjoy a stunning, scenic ride in comfortable heated carriages – complete with our ‘at-your-seat’ buffet service.nTrains leave Porthmadog at 11:15 and 14:05 – the round trip takes around1¼ hours, with the train due backinto Harbour Station at 12:30 and15:20… nnWe look forward to wel
