Welcome to the Fairbourne Railway Website

Helping you making the most of your day out

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 1986 was completely re built to a 12.25 inch gauge.

We are excited to welcome you back to our Railway.

We will reopen with steam haulage on Tuesday 14th July,

initially we will be running at 11.10, 12.30, 14.00 & 15.30 from Fairbourne.

 Buy your tickets on the day, with no pre booking needed.

Strict covid-19 procedures will be in place to protect both visitors and staff.
