The Easter Bunny will be visiting the railway on the 20th to 22nd April. Watch for Easter eggs along the line and check them off the list. All travelling children receive a handsome chocolate egg on arrival at Llanfair Caereinion.
Our yellow timetable operates during this event.
Normal fares apply for this event.
Any father accompanied by his child travels at the child price. Multiple generations welcome!
The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway is joining in the celebrations for Fathers’ Day on Sunday 16th June by offering dads the chance to ride the line at child rate.
On that day fathers who travel on the popular mid-Wales steam railway with one or more of their children will pay only £5.50 return for each ticket, the standard fare for children aged 3-15 (as always, children under three travel free). This compares to the standard adult return fare of £14.50.
The offer applies to multiple generations – grandfather, father and child riding together will need only three £5.00 tickets. And if there is a great-grandfather in the party, he travels for free! He really deserves it.
Any dads that come along for the Fathers’ Day trip will also be offered a tour of the workshop. Unfortunately we can’t take children into the workshop, but perhaps mum could help out here?
The 16th June timetable features two return trips from Welshpool Raven Square, at 11.15 and 14.05, and three from Llanfair Caereinion at 10.00, 13.00 and 15.30. We expect the day to be busy, so dads wanting to take advantage of the offer are advised to guarantee their space by booking online on this website (select 16th June on the timetable page and follow the instructions), where the child’s ticket is only £4.50. Dads should just book themselves a child’s ticket along with the tickets for the children.
