2015 Special Events

If you would like to experience something different on the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway then please read on.

NEW!  Our Easter Egg-stravaganza kicks off our season.  From Friday 3 to Monday 6 April every child that travels on the train will get a free Chocolate Easter Egg, plus you can join in the great Easter Egg Treasure Hunt.  Ordinary train fares apply.  NEW!

We shall be operating our replica Pickering carriages on extra trains on  13, 14, 27 & 28 June; 11, 12, 25 & 26 July; and 8 & 9 August 2015.  Leaving Llanfair Caereinion at 11.10, these trains are scheduled to be hauled by GWR No. 823 'Countess' (subject to availability).  Ordinary fares apply on these trains.  See timetable page for more details.

Our Annual Steam Gala (5 & 6 September 2015) is a special weekend, with all of our working engines in steam.  Our most intensive service of the year will operate over the Saturday and Sunday, with sales stands and extra attractions to help pass the time.  The event also coincides with a "Garden Railway" show held nearby.

For the children, the ideal way to end the year is a visit from Santa.  He and his helpers will be on hand to bring the year to a happy conclusion.  Ideal for adults too!  Santa Trains operate from Llanfair Caereinion on 12, 13, 19 & 20 December.

Keep an eye-out for updates to this page and additional events and information.

Details of all of these events will be added as they become available.
