Santa's Magical Steam Trains 2019 ticket update:

Please note due to signal problems at Bronwydd it is not always possible to get your e-ticket up to show our ticket checkers. For security we cannot accept tickets shown on a mobile phone at special events.

When you travel to the railway for this years event please ensure you have a paper ticket with your full details and the barcode ticket.

If you do not have a printed ticket you will be directed to the ticket office where our staff will give you a confirmation print. However this will delay your travel, to ensure a speedy entrance to the train ride please bring a printed ticket.

This will be exchanged at the ticket crossing with a grotto ticket. The red Santa ticket is your entry to the grotto, please hand this into the Elf greeters.

When you book online please ensure you bring a printed receipt of purchase when you arrive at the ticket office. 

We've got a busy schedule of events throughout the year. The Gwili Railway can accept no liability for failure to operate advertised services or attractions. A Diesel locomotive may have to be substituted for steam locomotive at short notice for operational reasons. Information correct at time of going to print.
