New Loco at Tan y Bwlch

New Loco at Tan y Bwlch

The popular play area at Tan y Bwlch now has its own train for children to play on.

The delightful wooden replica has been commissioned by the Friends of Tan y Bwlch group, sponsored by the Ffestiniog Railway Society and made locally by Howard Bowcott. It bears more than a passing resemblance to the Hunslet Quarry locos such as Britomart.

Hidden on and around the loco are pictures of various local birds and wildlife so the children can have a nature hunt whilst playing.


Come and explore and visit Tan y Bwlch tea room.
