Read the books and see Alice and Wininfred at the Bala Lake Railway, where it all started .
Today the line runs from Llanuwchllyn, to the outskirts of Bala 4½ miles away. The smaller scale of the railway's operation, of the old buildings and locomotives means the railway has all the charm of the old fashioned narrow gauge railway. When you visit , have a chat with the staff and volunteeres and you might be able to visit the signal box and loco shed/workshop. There are going to be even more wonderful engines at Bala soon!
Visit Peter Pan at Leighton Buzzard, Polar Bear at Amberley and Sea Lion at Groudle Glen
