Beautiful Welsh Countryside
Rheilffordd Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake Railway) offers a delightful 9 mile return journey alongside Bala Lake, through the beautiful Snowdonia National Park. Our narrow gauge steam trains give excellent views of the lake amid its surrounding scenery including the nearby mountains of Arenig Fawr, Aran Benllyn and Aran Fawddwy.

Important Announcements

Our trains are running

Face Coverings RequiredOur trains are running but please check our online timetable on this site and pre-book your tickets before travelling.

We have made several modifications to the way we operate so that we can keep you, our staff, and volunteers safe.

These include provision for social distancing, hand sanitising and enhanced cleaning of our trains and other areas. We have also reduced the capacity on board our trains to provide a safe distance between groups and installed some dividing screens between compartments.

Since July 27th it has been a requirement of the Welsh Government to wear a face covering when travelling on public transport in Wales which includes travelling on the Bala Lake Railway.
