Inter-Rail Pass (Heritage Railway Association)

Last minute addition from Jo Vincent, HR, Ffestiniog Railway

The Heritage Rail Association InterRail Pass scheme is open to directors, managers, paid staff and current volunteers working on a railway which participates in the Inter-Rail Pass scheme. For £30 you receive a 2 person Pass allowing you and another person to travel at free or reduced rates on railways participating in the scheme subject to travel restrictions set by each railway. The passes generally cannot be used on Santa specials, some gala days and other special occasions. A list of participating railways and the restrictions is provided with the pass.

The 2019/2020 pass is now available. It will be valid from 1st March 2019 to 29th February 2020.

The cost of the pass is £30, there is also a postage and packing charge of £1, therefore the total cost per pass is £31.

If you would like to purchase a 2019/2020 pass you can pay by cheque or credit/debit card. Please note the arrangements for making payments have changed this year. You do not need to send an SAE, the cost of postage is included.

If paying by cheque please send a letter stating your full name (not just initials) and the address you would like your pass sent to along with a cheque for £31 per pass, made payable to Festiniog Railway Company, to Joanna Vincent, Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways, Harbour Station, Porthmadog, Gwynedd, LL49 9NF.

If you prefer to pay by credit or debit card please telephone me on 01766 516073 or email me at giving a contact telephone number to arrange payment.  

In order to receive your pass by the start date please ensure your request reaches me by Friday 15th February. Requests will be submitted to HRA in batches and passes may take up to 3 weeks to be processed and sent out.
