Caulmert were commissioned to provide engineering services for the conceptual design to establish funding. Following the successful funding application, Caulmert began the site investigation works, including ground investigation and drainage, as well as the detailed civil and structural engineering design.
The design was undertaken through a traditional contract and Caulmert worked closely with the Architect and design team to develop a prestigious scheme to reflect the aspirations of the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway company.
The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway is Snowdonia’s most spectacular railway. Trains start a 25 mile scenic journey from beneath the castle walls at Caernarfon. The trains – hauled by the world’s most powerful narrow gauge steam locomotives – climb from sea level to over 650ft on the foothills of Snowdon, before zig-zagging dramatically down the steep hillside to reach Beddgelert, nestling in the heart of the National Park, then through the magnificent Aberglaslyn Pass and on to Porthmadog.
