Ffestiniog Travel was delighted to attend the launch of Ffestiniog Railway's new Carriage 120 in July 2018 - a project funded entirely by Ffestiniog Travel (FfT) at a cost of £106,000!
The company has thanked customers who have travelled with them and enabled it to finance the new build. Every holiday booking boosts profits that go towards supporting the preservation of the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways (F&WHR).
The latest addition to the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways' carriage fleet was built at the F&WHR's workshops at Boston Lodge in North Wales - the oldest working railway workshop in the world. The new carriage makes use of the maximum available loading gauge of the narrow and winding Ffestiniog Railway to provide more comfortable and spacious accommodation for passengers and features graphics on each table acknowledging the support of Ffestiniog Travel. The rail tour operator was delighted to be presented with a special wooden plaque, made in the carriage works, in recognition of its contribution.
F&WHR General Manager Paul Lewin said the heritage railway was “indebted to Ffestiniog Travel for its generous contribution”. Maria Cook, General Manager at Ffestiniog Travel added: “We would like to extend our thanks to all our customers for choosing to travel with us and making it possible for us to continue to support the F&WHR.”
