The Llechfan Garden Railway is a 16mm/foot scale garden railway located on the Talyllyn Railway in Tywyn, Gwynedd. Built in the garden at the rear of the Railway’s volunteer hostel Llechfan, the 32mm gauge line has around 180 yards of main running line consisting of two circuits (a low level circuit of 40 yards and a more recent higher level circuit of 90 yards, both of which are level) linked by a steeply inclined (1 in 35) branch line.
Each circuit has two stations with passing loops and a siding or two; the main station on the upper circuit is also home to steam up facilities and storage/display sidings.
Subject to the weather and individual availability, there is usually someone in Llechfan Garden most Sundays through the year, and Thursday evenings through the summer months, but we cannot guarantee that the railway will be operating as maintenance and improvement of the garden and railway is an ever present task.
Please ask platform staff at Tywyn Wharf station for directions to the garden railway. Do not cross the running lines to get to the layout unless supervised by Talyllyn Railway staff.
