Two separate railways, little in gauge, large in appeal. The 13-mile Ffestiniog from Porthmadog to Blaenau Ffestiniog one of Wales's best-loved Great Little Trains, was originally built to carry slate. The Welsh Highland from Caernarfon to Porthmadog travels through some of Snowdonia's most breathtaking mountain scenery and the show-stopping Aberglaslyn Pass - a whopping 25 miles from start to finish, making it Britain's longest heritage railway.
