Porthmadog station, Welsh Highland Heritage Railway 1999
Porthmadog station, Welsh Highland Heritage Railway 1999
View eastward towards Pont Croesor on the original Welsh Highland Railway to Beddgelert and Dinas, closed 1936. The ex-GWR (Cambrian Railway) standard-gauge line to Porthmadog (Cambrian) station and Pwllheli is passing on the right. The Welsh Highland Heritage Group had acquired this station in 1980 and in 1999 their trains were going just as far as Traeth Mawr loop near Pont Croesor. At that time the new Welsh Highland Railway (owned by the Ffestiniog Company) was not yet running beyond Dinas (from Caernarfon) and did not reach Porthmadog until January 2011. Since then it has been completed through to an enlarged Porthmadog Harbour station and terminates there along with the Ffestiniog Railway from Blaenau Ffestiniog.
