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.

  In line with Welsh Government instructions instituting a two week lockdown from Friday 23rd October, the Fairbourne Railway has now run its last steam services of 2020.


From Friday 23rd October we will enter our winter work period. Whilst it is likely that some staff will be on site, we would ask that in order to assist with safe socially distanced working, visitors do not attend without prior arrangement. We would also ask that our volunteers don’t just ‘pop in’ but phone first.


We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to everyone who has visited us this year and, with general goodwill, put up with the different way we have had to operate in this strangest of years. Because of you, and all those who have donated to our appeal, we will be here next year doing what we do best, running steam trains in unsurpassed scenery.


  Thanks also to our fantastic volunteers who have kept turning up, and kept the trains running.

 See you all next season




Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation and the Railways commitment to keep all passengers, staff and volunteer’s safe,

 we have reluctantly decided we are unable to run this year’s Halloween Train and Santa Specials
