Ffestiniog Railway Cams

One incredible and very comfortable way of touring the Snowdonia National Park in north Wales is by steam train on the Ffestiniog Heritage Railway. While you can’t see all of the countryside the park encompasses on these rail cams streamed by the Ffestiniog Railway, you can catch a glimpse of it on the Porthmadog Station live feed.

Porthmadog is one of ten stations along the thirteen and a half mile-long, narrow-gauge track that runs between Duffws and Porthmadog Harbour where it connects up with another historic narrow-gauge line, the Welsh Highland Railway. Tan-y-Bwlch and Minffordd, which means roadside in Welsh, are two more stations along the scenic track which first began operating in 1836. Trains pass through on average every two hours so if there’s not one due you’ll have to make do with the views which, you’ll probably agree, are not too shabby at all.

  1. Hello.
    It doesn’t do your image much good when you can’t spell ‘gauge’, and surely it’s the trains that have licensed bars, not the engines! Come on, chaps. A little more care will do no harm.

  2. You have mixed up information. The combined Ffestiniog Railway & Welsh Highland Railway network is 40 miles in extent. Running from Caernarfon to Blaenau Ffestiniog. The two lines are connected at Porthmadog. Minffordd is not on the WHR but on the connected FR. Great cameras. It would be good to have 3 more – one each at Caernarfon, Beddgelert and Blaenau Ffestiniog too. Please add sound!

  3. The FR cameras have been down for over a week. Are you planning to resolve the issue soon? Thanks! Sorry to be a nuisance of you are fixing it.

    It would be wonderful to have a camera mounted on the train itself? a bit hard with steam power?

  5. The pictures have been down for a couple of days. Please ensure they are up and running soon. I am house bound and a railway fan so this is one of my main forms of information and entertainment. I live in Norfolk and have friends living in Porthmadog.
