Unfortunately Big Teddy is unable to join us on this weekend, so we’ll have to put off his visit for this year.  However, children under 16 will still travel free on the Saturday or Sunday , 14th or 15th September, if accompanied by a paying adult – Teddy wouldn’t want them missing out on that.  Our regular yellow service will be in operation over the weekend.

Llanfair Caereinion station and the train will be spookily decorated and the last train will return to Llanfair in eerie dusk.

Come in costume and join in the fun. Spot the ghosts and creatures haunting the railway line for a prize.

Normal fares apply on all trains, and we'll be running our Yellow Timetable.
