A Day with “Alice the Little Welsh Engine” – Cancelled

1st August 2020

It is with much sadness that we have decided to cancel the Day with “Alice the Little Welsh Engine” that was scheduled for 1st August this year as we would be unable to run the event in a way that we would consider to be safe for our customers due to the Covid-19 pandemic.


Come along and meet “Alice the Little Welsh Engine” from Pauline Hazelwood’s beautiful childrens’ books.

Pauline the author will be at Llanuwchllyn station reading some of the stories, demonstrating how she draws the characters and involving the children in activities as well as signing books.

‘Alice’ will be giving rides at Llanuwchllyn station in the special Dinorwic Quarry carriage that was once used by royal visitors and shunting slate wagons just like she did in the quarry.

‘Alice’ will also be double-heading the last train of the day, which departs Llanuwchllyn at 3:55pm.

Activities start at 10:30am and finish at 3:45pm.

Normal train fares apply for rides – with all additional activities included.
