Important Announcements

Welsh ‘Fire-Break’ Lockdown – End of Season

With the announcement from the Welsh Government of a two week ‘fire-break’ lockdown the Bala Lake Railway will be closing for the rest of the season from Friday 23rd October.

Trains will be running as advertised on Thursday 22nd October. If local lockdown conditions in your area permit why not join us for a Final Fling this Thursday giving one last chance to ride on our beautiful little steam trains. Tickets can be booked online at https://shop.bala-lake-railway.co.uk/book/

If you’re not able to join us on Thursday then we look forward to seeing you next year. We would like to thank everyone for their support during 2020.

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. Visit the Your Journey page to find out more.

Bala Town Extension

The Bala Lake Railway Trust is raising £2.5 million as part of the Red Dragon Project to construct the extension of the Bala Lake Railway to Bala Town Station.

Covid-19 Restrictions

It is a requirement of the Welsh Government that our passengers wear face coverings whilst travelling on our trains and in all our indoor spaces including our shop/café, toilets, and Heritage Centre.

Children under the age of 11 are exempt and are not required to wear face coverings.

Sponsor a Sleeper
For the last 5 years we have embarked on a major programme of upgrading the sleepers that support the rails, completing about a ¼ mile of the railway each time over the winter. Despite our successful Covid-19 appeal, the pandemic has left us short of funds for this vital work, please help us by clicking the link below to sponsor a sleeper via our online shop.
