About Talyllyn Railway
The Talyllyn Railway is a historic narrow gauge steam railway, being the Worlds First preserved Railway!. Running continously since 1865, our track runs for 7.25miles from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol through unspoilt Snowdonia. Operated by a dedicated group of Volunteers, the railway carries passengers along the same route their Victorian ancestors would have done. Retrace the quarrymans journey into the hills to mine slate. Our principle station at Tywyn is also home to the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum, Railway Shop and King's Licensed Cafe & Bistro. A large carpark is available close to the station. The line passes the delightful Dolgoch Falls and there are excellent forest walks at Nant Gwernol. We offer a great day out for all the family, allow 4 hours for a round trip, visit to the museum and something to eat!. Groups receive a discount when booked in advance.

Had a wonderful day on the Talyllyn railway. All staff were friendly and helpful, and the scenery beautiful. Booked the cream tea which was delicious and well worth the money. Would highly recommend.

Used to bring our children here as often as we could afford to. Now celebrating our Golden Wedding year it seemed appropriate to visit and see how things are now. Things are great - excellent Covid precautions made us feel well looked after. Friendly staff as ever. Really enjoyed the trip to Abergynolwyn and back and also ate several times in the cafe at Wharf Station. Enjoyed lovely food each time but although well fed couldn't resist the blueberry yoghurt slice at Aber! Good work Talyllyn.

This was our second visit to the railway and it didn't disappoint. Everything felt very safe and Covid compliant and the staff were very friendly as usual. Stunning scenery and we can recommend the walk around Dolgoch Falls which we did afterwards. We also went around the museum which was very interesting. We felt so lucky we were able to visit just before Wales entered the circuit break lockdown. We hope to be back again next year when things might be more back to normal.

It was a beautiful autumn day and the journey on the train was very picturesque. All staff, who are volunteers, were friendly, ready to help and ensured we were kept Covid safe. Thank you to all who made this a pleasant experience.
