Conwy Valley Railway Museum
The miniature steam railway
|Location||Betws-y-Coed, Conwy County Borough, Wales|
|Website||Conwy Valley Railway Museum|
The museum was founded in the early 1970s by Alan Pratt, starting with a former standard gauge railway carriage which today acts as a licensed Buffet & Restaurant car. The current museum was built later, and contains various railway artefacts, including a 15 in (381 mm) gauge quarter scale (1:4) replica of a Britannia class locomotive.
Other attractions include a 7 1⁄4 in (184 mm) gauge miniature steam railway which runs for 1-mile (1.6 km) on the site.
There is also a one-third full-size (1:3) electric tramcar which runs for a 0.5-mile (805 m) on the site, on track of 15 in (381 mm) gauge. This is the only electric railway of any gauge in Wales.
