Event Times*: Please Contact Venue. Details Below

The Talyllyn Railway is probably alone in still being able to run its complete original passenger train dating from the 1860s, and invites you to enjoy a conducted tour featuring this unique train, travelling in the original coaches behind an original locomotive.| The train will depart from Tywyn Wharf Station at 11:15 a.m. It will make photographic stops, and allows time for lunch, for forest walks or more photography. The return to Tywyn Wharf will be by 3.12 p.m where you will be served a Victorian tea in King's Licensed Cafe and taken on a guided tour of the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum.| The trains run on certain Thursdays in the year, on the dates shown above. Available for hire at other times, please contact us for details.

Built on a gauge of 2 feet 3 inches, the Talyllyn Railway is one of a number of narrow-gauge lines in north and mid Wales built in the 19th century to carry slate, in the Talyllyn's case from the Bryn Eglwys quarries near Abergynolwyn. | Opened in 1865, the line runs the seven and a quarter miles from Tywyn (on the Cardigan Bay coast) to Nant Gwernol, from where a series of horse-drawn tramways continued into the mountains. | In 1950 the line's owner Sir Henry Haydn Jones died, and the future for the TR looked very bleak, as it had been losing money for some years. A group of enthusiasts, led by the engineer and author L.T.C. Rolt, sought to prevent the railway's closure. By then the railway was in a very sorry state with the one operable locomotive, in very poor condition, struggling to pull the trains along an overgrown and perilous track. | Since 1951 great improvements have been made; volunteer members of the TRPS now provide most of the train crew and station staff required to operate the line, and assist with maintenance work and with many other activities.
