Snowdonia's Railways

Snowdonia is Christmas for heritage railway buffs. Thanks to a history of industry and sightseeing, eight of the 11 heritage lines known collectively as the Great Little Trains of Wales can be found here, and are a delightful way of seeing the country while tickling your locomotive itch. The Great Little Trains of Wales discount card (www.greatlittletrainsofwales.co.uk; £10) gets adults 20% off return fares on all eight.
