Croeso! Welcome!

Affordable Entertainment for All Ages and Interests Whatever the Weather!

We provide a short train ride in historic narrow-gauge railway carriages out to and back from Pen y Mount Junction station, with, on the way back, a stop of around half an hour to explore our extensive all weather, hands-on railway heritage centre and museum, and opportunities on most days to ride on our miniature railway.

The train departs from Porthmadog (WHHR) Station, just across the road from Porthmadog’s main line (Cambrian Coast) railway station, and arrives back in about an hour. It is hauled by a steam locomotive on days when enough volunteer staff are available, otherwise or at quieter times by a diesel locomotive.

Before and after the trip you can also visit our shop, which is well stocked with gifts, toys, railway models and books, and Caffi Russell's Café, which serves freshly prepared food and drink. A car park is available free of charge to visitors, although it can get full at busy times.

Train services in 2024 operate from late March onwards, please see the Timetable and Events and Driver Experience pages, and the 2024 timetable leaflet, for more details. Tickets can be purchased when you arrive at the railway and are valid for unlimited travel for the rest of the day. There is no need to book in advance.

A family ticket (maximum 2 adults 2 children) costs just £37, please see the fares page for more details of this and other tickets. All include the train ride, the railway centre and museum, and the miniature railway. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for the latest updates.

Our shop staff also welcome orders by email or by post. Details of some of the items on offer are shown on our Facebook pages. Enquiries are welcome, please email or leave a message on 01766 513402. The shop may also open on days when the railway is not operating, please check in advance before making a special journey.

Please keep an eye on the Caffi Russell’s Café Facebook page for updates on café opening times and menus.
