Trip on Welsh Steam Railways
This evening, I am reprising a tour with emphasis on steam trains in Wales.
First deaprt lodgings at Porthmadog and drive for about 45 minutes to the Snowdon Mountain Railway at Llanberis. Here join the 10.30 am train to the top of Mount Snowdon (3560 feet) and then return via the same route. Round trip takes two and a half hours.

Upon return to Llanberis return to Porthmadog and visit the engineering workshops of the Ffestiniog Railway by way of an escorted tour.
Next, join the 3.45 pm departure on the Ffestiniog Railway which provides aa round trip via Blaenau Ffestiniog returning at 6.30 pm. This route passes through more stunning scenery including farmland with sheep, cattle and a horses.The green landscapes are embellished with a wide range of seasonal flora including heather (in bloom).
