Overview

The Talyllyn Railway is a historic narrow gauge steam railway, being the Worlds First preserved Railway!. Our track runs for 7.25miles from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol through unspoilt Snowdonia. Our station at Tywyn is also home to the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum, Railway Shop and King's Licensed Cafe & Bistro. 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.

When in Tywyn, if you get the chance, take a trip on the steam train to visit the falls and then on to the next small village, buy a day ticket so you can get on and off at different stops. Fun family day out.
