Be Prepared to be Scared!!!

We will be running these very popular trains again in 2016

Dare you ride the ghostly train to the witches coven? Will your train make it through to the end of the line, or like all the others on Halloween will it be forced to turn back by the ghost of the headless track man?

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

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

Our Halloween Trains will depart from Llanuwchllyn at 4.30, 5.30 and 6.30, please note that it is not possible to board these trains at any other station
