A week into Autumn and we still hadn’t travelled on the Ffestiniog Railway. That really had to be rectified while the weather still held. So today was to be the day. And what a day it turned out. Warm, sunny, and still. Perfect.
The train heads off from Porthmadog Station, a 30 minute drive from home. That meant a fairly leisurely morning with time enough to prepare a picnic lunch for the journey and a photo opportunity stop along the way.
It was a wonderful day.
Once you’ve parked up and boarded a train that winds its leisurely way through glorious scenery you’ve surrendered yourself to ‘enforced R&R’. And as enforced R&R goes – it’s one of the best!
