Bala Lake Railway

< >

The Bala Lake Railway runs along the shore of Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) from Llanuwchllyn station betweenj Bala and Dolgellau. The railway is built on the original trackbed of the standard gauge GWR line from Corwen to Barmouth which closed in the 1960's. In 1971 an enterprising local group saw the possibility for running a new tourist line along the lake and the Bala Lake Railway was born.

It is now home to an impressive collection of preserved locomotives including three "Quarry Hunslets" from the Dinorwic quarry railway.
