Fairbourne welcomed three visiting locomotives for the weekend, which were Katie and Count Louis. These locomotives ran on the special length of 15″ dual gauge track.

Joining the visiting steam locomotives were joined by Russell, Sherpa, Yeo, Tony and Gwril on the main part of the railway with an intensive few day of train services.

The Fairbourne Railway has already got a lot on this year, see below for our Event Calendar details of events at the Fairbourne Railway in 2017.
