Defibrillators on our trains!

Defibrillators on our trains!The Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways are pleased to announce the introduction of defibrillators on our main carriage fleet, in addition to those at our main stations of Caernarfon, Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog. This is a significant enhancement of our first aid capabilities, and possibly unique in the heritage railway sector.

The purchase of these five additional defibrillators is thanks to the generosity of both the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway Societies, with the support of Tomos Hughes MBE and his charity Achub Calon y Dyffryn.

We will be celebrating the new defibrillators with an event on Monday 17th February, from 12:30 until 2:00pm, at Porthmadog Harbour Station. Come along and join us, find out more about first aid, CPR – and see just how easy using a defibrillator is! Defibrillators on our trains!
