Train Rides

Starward bound on the night train - it’s where the stories begin.

Riding off into the sunset on a night train is what great stories are made of. There are some great night trains in Wales that will take you across amazing starlit landscapes. Time it right and you may see the moon rise and gain glimpses of shooting stars. Night train rides on the wealth of narrow-gauge railways in Wales, especially in the Snowdonia National Park provide an opportunity to enjoy dark skies from the tracks.

Some railways already run specialist night time events -
For opportunities to enjoy night time train rides see websites for details.
