The line is owned by the North York Moors Historical Railway Trust who have run the line as a living museum since 1974.

With our magnificent steam engines, beautiful rural stations and smartly uniformed staff, a visit to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway is like taking a step back in time. From the smoke and steam pouring from the engines to the cosy wood-panelled carriages and friendly conductor service, the railway is both lovingly preserved and charmingly authentic. It’s also the perfect starting point for a day out, whether you’re travelling between the rugged Yorkshire villages, hiking on the wind swept moors or spending a day by the seaside in Whitby.

Vale of Rheidol Railway
Aberystwyth, Wales - A blast of the whistle and the hiss of steam and you’re away! Sit back, relax and let us take you on a nostalgic journey through some of Wales’ most spectacular scenery.

Travelling on the Vale of Rheidol Railway is the finest way to see the stunning Rheidol Valley. Opened in 1902, the railway has been delighting passengers young and old for over a century.

From the comfort of your carriage watch the scenery passing by. See the countryside change as you travel through wide open fields, woodland and rugged mountain scenery, the line twisting and turning as it clings to the hillside. Listen to the sound of a powerful narrow gauge steam locomotive working hard to climb 700ft (200m) in the 11 ¾ miles from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge.

Birds of prey such as Red Kite and Buzzards are regularly seen soaring high above the valley floor and breathtaking views can be enjoyed by all.

The line is a masterpiece of engineering, opened in 1902 to carry lead ore, timber and passenger traffic. The narrow track gauge allows the railway to follow the contours of the terrain with many sharp curves and steep gradients which add to the railway’s charm.

Welsh Highland Railway Project
North Wales - The Welsh Highland Railway Project is a title that will be familiar to anyone with a passing interest in the railway. It was the name given to a website that was set up by the late Dr Ben Fisher with the intention of following the reconstruction of the Welsh Highland Railway. The website became the 'official' provider of news, information and announcements associated with the reconstruction.

What this website did was to record every aspect of the day to day rebuilding of the railway to such an extent that it is now a significant historical record of that reconstruction. It also recorded the numerous events, galas and celebratory occasions of those reconstruction years.

Ben kept the website updated on a regular basis until his sudden, and untimely, death in August 2009. Following the sad loss of Ben, his family felt that this record should not be lost to the wider world. This was a likely scenario as the website was very kindly hosted courtesy of Bangor University where Ben worked. In order to ensure its survival it was offered to Cymdeithas Rheilffordd Eryri to be part of their (new) society website and where updating of reconstruction progress could continue.
