Steaming Through Snowdonia

Steaming Through Snowdonia

The Great Little Trains of Wales are a very special way of seeing some of the best scenery in the British Isles.

The Great Little Trains of Wales are a very special way of seeing some of the best scenery in the British Isles. All are narrow gauge steam railways, some over 100 years old, and were originally used to carry Welsh slate from the quarries to the sea. Today they serve tourists and visitors with the distinct charm of steam trains with polished paintwork and brass.
