Halloween Trains - October 27th & 31st

Be Prepared to be Scared!!!

Halloween at the BLR  Halloween at the BLR

We are running these very popular trains again this Halloween.

Dare you ride the ghostly train to the witches coven?

Will your train make it through to the end of the line or will one of the ghosts or spectres force it to turn back?

There's only one way to find out, join us for an evening of storytelling and ghoulish fun.

This event is only mildly scary and is suitable for the whole family.

Our Halloween Trains will depart from Llanuwchllyn at 5.15 and 6.30, please note that it is not possible to board these trains at any other station.

Fares: Adults £6 - Children £3
