About this Event

The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway - The Best Way to See Snowdonia

by Mark Temple, Bristol Branch of the Ffestiniog Railway Society

at

Kennet Valley Hall, Lockeridge Nr Marlborough SN8 4EL

Friday 31st January 2020 from 7.00pm

This fascinating talk will explain how after opening to slate trains in 1836 the Ffestiniog Railway became the first narrow gauge railway to take passengers in 1865. After passenger trains stopped in 1939 and slate trains in 1946 the railway ran into decline and then hear about the restoration from 1955 to 1982 and how today the business offers railway holidays and is supported by the work of hundreds of volunteers and staff that keep it running.

Tickets are £10-00 and include light refreshments. There will also be a cash bar.
