The Welsh Highland Railway
Centenary Event

23rd – 25th June

The Welsh Highland Railway Centenary Celebrations will take place over the long-weekend of 23rd, 24th & 25th of June 2023.

We are delighted to announce that the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways & the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway along with their supporting societies are working together to organise these celebrations, which will primarily take place in and around the Porthmadog area.

The 2022 event weekend back in July was a fantastic success and we are determined to make the 2023 celebrations even better!

Our 2023 event will re-create scenes from the original WHR 1923 operation and showcase the history of this iconic line right through to the scenic tourist trains that operate today.

If you haven’t already watched it, make sure you take a look at the WHR100 Event Update video, which explains where we are currently up to in the planning stages.

Further details will be announced in due course… so watch this space!
