Also running this weekend  (both the 16th/17th April 2016) is the railways ‘Join The Volunteers Weekend’, this is where members of the public get the chance to meet the volunteers and have a chance to enquire about volunteering themselves.



Both of the events have to have been booked prior to attending. ‘The Snowdonian’ is now Fully Booked. As it is fully booked, the Ffestiniog Railway is having a ‘Snowdonian Limited’ train in June, with just 100 seats available, this is an extra train being put on due to the over whelming interest in the April special.

We at Railway Adventures hope to be there for ‘The Snowdonian’ as we shoot footage of this special train!
