Most reviewers get mixed up with the bigger railway between Porthmadog and Caernarfon. The railway is excellent but short in length. It is nice to have a tour of the loco shed. Look forward to the future when you can change trains at Pen-y-Mount to your bigger neighbour.
If you have an hour to kill, this is a great little railway to visit. It is short enough to maintain children's attention with much to interest everyone. Children are involved when the engine runs round the train at the far terminus; there is a ride on a miniature railway at Gelerts Farm and an interactive museum for children and... 更多
Travelled 1stclass from Caernarfon to porthmadoc.....beautiful scenery and very pleasant journey . Had a snack on board and coffee . Well worth the upgrade to 1st class as the 3rd class seats looked a little uncomfortable for such a long journey
There are two other long steam railways in town, and they are nice too, but they don't let you work the points and signals, or drive a train!

They included our 3 year old and everyone... 更多
The WHHR is a brilliant alternative to the Ffestiniog, particularly if you have younger children. The line is only a mile of so long which means young kids don't get fed up sitting in the carriage, but still get the enjoyment of the ride. The volunteers couldn't have been friendlier and more welcoming. They lived up to their promise of... 更多
We fell in love with this museum in the late 80s. It has so many interesting things, and people with time to share their love and knowledge about narrow gauge rail and steam. A very short ride takes you to the engine shed which is full of things to climb on and enough but not too much info. We returned... 更多
