Blaenau Ffestiniog Station

Scope and Content

The present station opened 22 March 1982. In 1990 the Ffestiniog Railway built a new island platform adjoining the standard gauge line and interchange facilities were then available. In October 1990 flooding severed the Conwy Valley line north of Llanrwst and stranded a Nuclear Flask working hauled by Class 31 N0.31275 and a DMU. On the Narrow Gauge lines at the right of the picture the ex Penrhyn Railway locomotive 'Linda' of the Ffestiniog Railway can be seen.
