Talyllyn Railway’s annual Stations of the Cross pilgrimage for 2023

A scene from a previous Stations at Stations pilgrimage at Talyllyn Railway.

A unique Good Friday event will again take place on Talyllyn Railway in Mid Wales this year.

Called ‘Stations at Stations’, a special train will stop at each station along the line exploring the story of the first Good Friday with readings, prayers and reflections.

This year, the Rev. Phil Jump, North West Area Baptist Association regional minister, will be leading the reflections focused on eight of the ‘Stations of the Cross’.

The event, which is supported by churches and chapels in Tywyn and surrounding area, started in 2009 and continued every year up to the outbreak of the Covid pandemic in 2019.

Last year, after the relaxation of Covid restrictions, the event was reinstated to the annual Talyllyn Railway programme.

The event starts at Tywyn Wharf station at 4 pm and the train will return by 9pm. There will also be a refreshment stop at Abergynolwyn station at around 6.30 pm where teas, coffees and light refreshments will be on sale.

Tickets, costing £6 for adults and £3 for children, can be booked on-line at: talyllyn.co.uk or in person at Wharf station when trains are running.
