Father’s Day treat on Llanfair line

Children will be able to give their dads a Fathers’ Day treat by taking them for a ride on the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway on Sunday, while not spending too much of their pocket money.

On that day, fathers who travel on the popular steam railway with one or more of their children will pay only £4.50 return for each ticket, the standard fare for children aged 3-15 (as always, children under three travel free). This compares to the standard adult return fare of £13.70.

And it doesn’t matter how old the dads are – if a grandfather, father and child all ride together they will need only three £4.50 tickets. And any great-grandfathers that visit on the day will get a ticket for free.

Any dads that take the Fathers’ Day trip will also be offered a tour of the sheds at Llanfair to see part of the collection of locomotives, carriages and wagons. Unfortunately, children can’t be taken into the sheds so will need to be left with a mother or alternative adult.

The June 17 timetable features two return trips from Welshpool Raven Square, at 11.15am and 2.05pm, and three from Llanfair Caereinion at 10am, 1pm and 3.30pm.

“We expect the day to be busy, so dads wanting to take advantage of the offer are advised to guarantee their space by booking online at, where the child’s ticket is only £4,” said a spokesperson.

“Dads should just book themselves a child’s ticket along with the tickets for their children.”

The railway is now operating five days a week – trains are running every day except Monday and Friday – more details are on the timetable page of And the tearoom at Llanfair Caereinion station is open every day.
