The Ffestiniog Railway has announced that 5 steam locomotives will be in action and will be hauling steam trains between Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog this Bank Holiday Weekend.

Steam locomotives Linda and Blanche will be double heading the 10:05 and 13:35 this weekend (Saturday and Sunday).

David Lloyd George taking the 11:25/15:45 departures on Saturday and Merddin Emrys taking the 11:25/15:45 on Sunday.

On Bank Holiday Monday, Linda will double head with Prince on the 10:05/13:35 departures.

Blanche will be hauling the 10:30/14:30 departures, with David Lloyd George taking the 11:25 and 15:45 departures.

This is a superb opportunity to have a ride behind some steam locomotives you may not have had a ride behind before. Normal fares apply!
