After the success of our event last year, we are holding a “Join the F&WHR Volunteers” weekend, when you can visit us on Saturday 21st or Sunday 22nd April and we will take you behind the scenes, show you what you can do and to answer all of your questions. There will be something that appeals to everyone and if you are not sure, we will let you have a go…

As the Earl of Merioneth heads into the retirement, the last trains will be on Sunday 8th April 2018, see the Ffestiniog Railway website for details.
Keep an eye on the roster – it is currently still in service and expected to be running over Easter Weekend.

REMINDER – JOIN THE RAILWAY VOLUNTEERS 27 & 28 APRIL
The recruitment weekend will be taking place very shortly but it’s not too late to join in. Remember this is your chance to find out what you can do for the railway as a volunteer and why people enjoy it so much.
We will need to know if you want to come on the Saturday or the Sunday. You will need to wear stout shoes or boots as in places the ground surfaces at Boston Lodge and Minffordd Yard are uneven and, as we can never guarantee good weather, it is probably wise to bring waterproofs. Refreshments including a sandwich lunch will be provided.
To register your interest and obtain an application form please email firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to meeting you. Howard Wilson

Good morning from the top left-hand corner of Wales - where the signals go clunk, the waves lap at the station edge and the engines are whiffling happily pic.twitter.com/mRdAfPh1eB— Tim Dunn (@MrTimDunn) April 20, 2019
Porthmadog has soared to 23 Celsius this afternoon— ᴅᴇʀᴇᴋ ʙʀᴏᴄᴋᴡᴀʏ ᴡᴇᴀᴛʜᴇʀᴍᴀɴ (@DerekTheWeather) April 19, 2019
Warmer than anywhere in Spain, Portugal and most of the Med!
The temperature has dropped a little recently with a gentle sea breeze kicking in but still very pleasant. pic.twitter.com/5g7rGcJubY
