Welcome to the Fairbourne Railway

The Fairbourne Railway has been running from Fairbourne village to the mouth of the Mawddach Estuary, connecting with the ferry to Barmouth for over 100 years. It started as a two foot gauge horse-drawn tramway which was then converted to a 15 inch gauge railway in 1916. The line in 1984 was completely re built to a 12.25 inch gauge.

Help Beddgelert Steam Again!
Our much-loved locomotive Beddgelert has been resting in the museum at Fairbourne Station for 5 years. Now she is emerging to take part in the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway’s Hunslet 125 Gala over the weekend of 22-24th June. Our Beddgelert is, of course, a half-sized replica of a Hunslet loco that used to operate over the Welsh Highland route. Not only will it be appearing on display throughout the event, but on Sunday 24th she will be travelling in a steam hauled mixed train - Beddgelert is going to Beddgelert!
We could not let this occasion go by without doing something to help the engine, so we are launching a Beddgelert Restoration Fund. At the present time no detailed costings are available, but we estimate that it is likely to take £35,000 to see Beddgelert steam again. So if you would like to contribute, and bring forward the time when she can resume her place amongst Fairbourne’s operational fleet, please click on the button below??
