Miniature Railway, Tramway and Model Railways at Betwys-y-Coed

Betwys-y-Coed

A trip up the A5 into Wales could take you to Betws-y-Coed and the ConwyValley Railway & Museum

Located in the beautiful village of Betws-y-Coed adjacent to the British Rail station Conwy Valley Railway Museum is a must for all who enjoy trains.  A miniature railway takes you on a 10 minute trip around the beautifully landscaped grounds. If you are lucky you may see wild rabbits grazing by the pond. There is even a tunnel for the train to go through. Trains run every day from 10.30am to 4.30pm. In the season and every weekend there will be a steam engine pulling the train – at other times a diesel engine will be in service.  For a different view of the site take the fifteen inch gauge electric tramcar – the only one in Wales. As this is a larger vehicle it is suitable for those with mobility problems.

Inside the museum we have model railways that you can operate by pressing a button. There are lots of railway artefacts and miniature railway engines including a magnificent quarter scale ‘Britannia’. The museum is accessible to the disabled.

Come and browse our well stocked model shop with a large selection of model trains including Hornby sets and accessories, die cast cars and planes, Airfix model kits and railway books.
