The Centenary Research Competition

The Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways, the Welsh Highland Railway Society, the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway and the Welsh Highland Railway Heritage Group are jointly sponsoring a series of activities and events in 2022 and 2023 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the opening of the ‘original’ WHR in 1923 from Dinas, near Caernarfon to Porthmadog.
