The West Shore Miniature Railway Experience
Starting on Good Friday and open all over Easter we are open Bank Holidays and Saturdays ( weather permitting ) from 12:00 to 16:00 where young and old alike can enjoy a ride behind both steam and electric locomotives on our track at West Shore.
A great family experience and photo opportunity with the Great Orme as a backdrop. The beach and the North Wales Cycle Path are nearby.
The railway is maintained and operated by the North Wales Model Engineering Society and members often run their own locomotives during our public running sessions.
You can find us adjacent to the West Shore ‘Park and Display’ Car Park.
A Land Train also runs from the Pier entrance on the North Shore Promanade to the West Shore Childrens Playground. The Railway is a short walk along the Prom.
