Event Details

THE CAMBRIAN COAST EXPRESS – FRIDAY 9 SEPTEMBER 2022


FOR LOVERS OF STUNNING SCENERY, THE SINGLE TRACK RAILWAY THAT WENDS ACROSS
MID-WALES AND THEN FOLLOWS THE CAMBRIAN COAST TO PWLLHELI IS HARD TO BEAT. 

On leaving Shrewsbury enjoy the undulating views as our special train joins the Cambrian line heading west through the pleasant Borders countryside.

Once into Wales the line climbs through narrowing valleys to a summit at Talerddig before a winding descent to Machynlleth.  We soon cross and follow the Dovey Estuary to Aberdovey, before the climb to the Friog rock shelter is followed by descent to the famous wooden bridge across the sandy Mawddach Estuary into Barmouth.

Our train then continues north through Harlech, with set downs at Minffordd and Porthmadog before reaching lines end at Pwllheli.  The return retraces the outward route, giving you another opportunity to appreciate the fabulous scenery.

 

WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING DESTINATIONS FOR YOUR TO CHOOSE FROM:

Option A – BARMOUTH (1300/1745):

A compact resort and start of a circular trip, featuring a river ferry and a walk over Barmouth Bridge.

Option B – MINFFORDD & PORTMEIRION (1350/1700):

Why not walk a mile (each way) and visit the Italianate village of Portmeirion,
made famous by the Prisoner TV series of the 1960s (Pay admission charge on the day).

Option C – PORTHMADOG (1415/1645):

A very pleasant port and town, home to several narrow gauge railways.

Option D – PWLLHELI (1440/1620):

Market town of the Llŷn Peninsula with marina. Journeys end of course!
