The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway – The Best Way to See Snowdonia
by Mark Temple, Bristol Branch of the Ffestiniog Railway Society
This fascinating talk will explain how after opening to slate trains in 1836 the Ffestiniog Railway became the first narrow gauge railway to take passengers in 1865. After passenger trains stopped in 1939 and slate trains in 1946 the railway ran into decline and then hear about the restoration from 1955 to 1982 and how today the business offers railway holidays and is supported by the work of hundreds of volunteers and staff that keep it running.
