Porthladd Fechan (SmallHarbour) is situated in North West Wales and represents a small station serving what were originally two different railway lines that have since merged. The majority of the traffic now consists of passengers, with a variety of freight operated to supplement the declining slate trade. Due to differences in the loading gauges of the two railways, occasional trains still need to change engines at Porthladd Fechan. The majority of the locomotive stock is based on that of the Ffestiniog and original Welsh Highland Railways, although a number of other types can be seen, both freelance and prototypical.
