Date Posted: 10/09/2012

From the UK’s best railway and coastal scenery to tailor-made rail journeys overseas, Ffestiniog Travel has launched a host of new rail holidays for groups.

One of the UK’s specialist operators to Romania, Ffestiniog Travel has added two tours for 2013: Romania - Life As It Used To Be departing in May, and autumn itinerary Romania’s Golden Colours.

Special-interest groups can also enjoy the five-day FR Behind the Scenes itinerary, which offers an insight into normally-unseen aspects of Ffestiniog Travel’s sister company - the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways.

Watch the locos being prepared, visit areas not usually open to the public and experience a private ‘Behind the Scenes’ day trip on a steam-hauled two-coach train.
