The Slate Trail

Experience a unique journey following in the footsteps of your forefathers in beautiful Snowdonia!

The Talyllyn Railway is probably alone in being able to run its original passenger train dating from the 1860s and invites you to enjoy a guided tour travelling in this unique train.

The experienced guide will travel on the train throughout the journey, pointing out interesting features and answering questions.

Stops for lunch, photographs, forest walks and more!

This tour includes an exclusive behind the scenes tour of the Locomotive Shed & Workshop at Pendre. The price is £39.50/adult, £15.00/child

Make your journey extra special and book a hamper to take with you on the train.
Your hamper will include a sandwich, salad pot, yoghurt, sausage roll, crisps and a bottle of water. All locally sourced. You can also add a 200ml bottle of Prosecco and a glass to celebrate your journey!

The Slate Trail departs Tywyn Wharf at 11:20 am and arrives back at Tywyn Wharf at 3.49 p.m. where you will be served a Welsh Cream Tea in King’s Licensed Cafe and taken on a guided tour of the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum. The full experience lasts around 5 hours.
