Peter Johnson’s book - The 40 Mile Railway.

Anyone who loves Snowdonia will enjoy this book, not just the railway enthusiast.
Restoration of the 25-mile Welsh Highland Railway from Caernarfon to Porthmadog has, combined with the Ffestiniog Railway’s historic route from Porthmadog to Blaenau Ffestiniog, created one of the great railway journeys of the world. Peter Johnson has brought together over 250 illustrations from many different sources to describe a journey from Caernarfon to Blaenau Ffestiniog that also looks over the fence at the hidden world of villages, remote farms, hamlets and relics of the past that are passed by the trains.
Take a journey over the 40-mile railway, discover the secrets of its route and savour its scenic wonders in this 160-page hardback book published by the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways.

The Vale of Rheidol Railway (WelshRheilffordd Cwm Rheidol) is a 1ft 11 3/4 inches (603 mmnarrow gauge heritage railway that runs for 11 3?4 miles (18.9 km) between Aberystwyth and Devil's Bridge in the county of Ceredigion, Wales.

privatisation, it was the sole steam-operated line on the nationalised British Rail network, steam traction having ceased in 1968 on all other parts of the system. Unlike some other preserved railways in the United Kingdom, the Vale of Rheidol Railway has never closed, with the exception of wartime and has operated a service for tourists through its life. The railway celebrated its centenary in 2002. 

The Railway is a charity, meaning the income it generates goes back into the railway, to aid in restoration and running of the steam locomotives. Buying through our online giftshop enables you to get the product you want but also donate to the railway and keep it alive.
