The Bala Lake Railway has announced that they have chosen to close the railway until at least Friday 10th April 2020.

This decision comes after new guidance from the government which said for people to avoid unnecessary travel and social contact.

This is, of course, in addition to the fact that passengers sit in narrow gauge carriages, all in close confinement.
