Phase 14

Llan Ffestiniog Station

 

This is one of the intermediate stations on the mothballed section and when originally built was the terminus for the Bala & Ffestiniog Railway which connected to Blaenau Ffestiniog via a narrow gauge railway that was later converted to standard gauge allowing through trains to Blaenau Ffestiniog. The line had a carriage works at this location which is in an area now owned and built on by private individuals.

Working Party Weekends

19th & 20th Sept 2020

Proposal

It is proposed by the trust that Llan Ffestiniog become one of 6 stations on the line

It is proposed to restore the station platforms and buildings to as original as we can subject to planning permission and compliance with up to date regulations. We would also like to try and maintain the track diagram on the right as much as possible to allow flexibility at this location and some additional storage space for stock in the long term.

 

Progress

The Trust identified the owners of the Llan Ffestiniog Site, which had been split in two, in 2020. The Trust met up with the owners of the core sections which included both Platforms in July 2020 and agreed an outline agreement to arrange clearance work on the site pending a formal lease.

The clearance work is to enable the Trust and the owners of the site to be able to provide a more clearly defined area of working to the benefit of both parties. It is hoped to finalise a formal lease agreement in September 2020.
