I was reading that the railway trip between Porthmadog to Waunfawr was particularly nice and looking at the timetable it seems like you would need to stay overnight in Caernarfon? There is a castle there to visit too.
I am travelling with my husband and 15 month old, and we do have a hire car. Ideally we would just do a day trip but I don't think this is really possible looking at the timetable. So does that mean we would drive to Porthmadog, and then stay overnight and just bring a small overnight bag (is there much room on the railway to bring luggage?) and then catch the train back the next day?
What do people usually do? Is it worth it to take 2 days out to do this railway trip? Are there shorter half day trips we could do without needing to take an overnight stay?
I was reading about the Precipice walk and this sounds really good - not too strenuous but scenic +++
Any other suggestions?? Thank you :)
