Although only a short line it is well worth visiting for the time spent at Gelert's Farm museum and engine shed, which has some fascinating exhibits. The staff were friendly and helpful, which is always a bonus.

Visitors buy tickets and board the train at Porthmadog. The station is at the north end of town, across the High Street from the main line railway station, so it's a walk from the F&WHR station. WHHR trains run "out and... More
