Today was M's big treat! We boarded a steam train to travel the famous (well Dave knows about it anyway) Ffestiniog Railway to see the spectacular scenery of the Snowdonia National Park.
The scenery was incredible. We travelled to the end of the line, Blanan Ffestiniog were we detrained to have a walk and look at the scenery.
The railway boasts that it is the oldest independent Railway Company in the world and is a narrow gauge steam railway. It seems to be the way that a lot of walkers travel into the National Park. They get off and walk between stations, we saw a lot of tracks along the way.
We hopped back on but decided to do the walk down to Tarn-y-Bwlch. There were so many people walking, lots of families.We had a lovely day, and came back to Porthmadog very happy with the journey. Tomorrow we are off to Ireland.
