Tywyn Wharf railway station
In this webcam you can see Tywyn Wharf railway station, which is the western terminus and main station of the first steam railway of Talyllyn Railway in the city of Tywyn, Gwynedd County, Mid Wales.
The first passenger train departing from Wharf in this live broadcast was recorded in 1877. Around 1910, the station shown on the webcam was renamed to Tywyn Wharf, although the former name of “Royal Station” continued to be used for official events until at least 1915.
The Talyllyn Railway online, begins in Tywyn on the Mid Wales coast.
Besides Tywin Wharf station in this webcam, Talyllyn Railway includes such stations as Pendre, Rhydyronen, Brynglas, Dolgoch Falls, Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol.
The entire journey takes a little more than 23 km roundtrip along the route unchanged since 1865.
The first two Victorian steam locomotives and four passenger carriages are still regularly used with others ones built or acquired over the years. The original Victorian train that opened the line still runs on certain days. It is better to ride such a retro train with a tour guide.
Narrow Gauge Railway Museum
Narrow Gauge Railway Museum is located on the Tywyn Wharf railway station site, which you see in live camera. The first museum in Tywyn Wharf, whose station is shown online, was first built in 1955 on the site of an abandoned gunpowder store. Later is was transferred to a separate building. Since then, the Tywyn Wharf Station building you see in live stream and the museum has been expanded. In 2005, there were opened a new museum, shop and cafe.
