The Fairbourne Miniature Steam Railway has been running for more than a century. It started as a a two-foot narrow gauge horse-drawn tramway before being converted to a fifteen-inch gauge railway in 1916. It was completely rebuilt to a twelve-and-a-quarter inch gauge line in 1984.
It takes passengers from the village of Fairbourne to the southern shores of the magnificent Mawddach Estuary at “The Point”. Once you’ve reached the end of the line, you can either return on the train, or continue with a quarter of a mile journey to Barmouth over the Estuary on the Fairbourne to Barmouth Ferry.
While you’re at Barmouth, you can spend a while on the beautiful sandy beach, walk around the town with it’s lovely range of shops, or take a walk up in the hills for a stunning view of the Cardigan Coast.
