Joint Marketing Partnership with Talacre Beach Holiday Home Park

We are pleased to announce that we have joined marketing forces with Darwin Escapes who own Talacre Beach Holiday Home Park. They will be handing out leaflets to all their guests which will act as a guide for the area - in which they will now include Conwy Valley Railway Museum & Model Shop. Click here for further details.


Tram out of operation

Unfortunately, the tram is currently not operational. The line was flooded on Boxing Day and gales have brought down the power cables so it is a big job to get everything working again.


May Spring Bank Holiday Week 2015

We are having some visiting engines at the railway during Spring Bank Holiday week. Four visiting Denvers will be joining 'Old Rube', including 'Gerry' which is a brand new built loco. The trains will be hauled by one or two Denvers if they are available. On the evening of Sunday, 24th May, 2015 we will run a special train hauled by all the locomotives – a quintuple headed train! During the week the steam engines will be in service every day from 10.30am to 4.30pm.
