The Talyllyn Railway is the ideal Welsh day out
Our friendly staff and volunteers will welcome groups to the spectacular and beautiful scenery where the southern slopes of Snowdonia meet the sea on the Mid Wales coast of Cardigan Bay. Your narrow gauge steam train dates back to the 1860s and will transport you in comfort from Tywyn inland nearly 8 miles. In need of refreshment or a souvenir? We have well stocked licensed cafés and shops at Tywyn and Abergynolwyn. There are facilities for wheelchairs on almost all our trains, and there are accessible toilets. The Talyllyn railway was the first railway in the world to be preserved in 1951. Ever since it has been run mainly by volunteers, whose enthusiasm is infectious. They will always find time to chat, even perhaps to show our visitors the workings of the immaculate steam engine at the head of the train.
Want to have a look at our signal box? Just ask! There is a fantastic Narrow Gauge Railway Museum at Tywyn, where the story of the little railways throughout the UK can be enjoyed. There is free coach parking and free driver hospitality too.
We also offer free group reservations on our trains. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
