Along with many other railways, the FR has in the past operated during the Xmas/New Year period.

Heavy snowfalls on this day made the whole area around the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways quite treacherous to negotiate - except by train! Here are some photographs of the line and surrounding scenery under the white blanket.

From the Cob again
A cold magical scene of the trees in white
There's still time for a chat with the Driver
Some brave family watches the steam loco receive its liquid refreshment at Tan y Bwlch

Llyn Ystradau at its best
Another refill at Blaenau Ffestiniog Station and ready for the return
