The Conwy Valley Railway Museum was originally formed by Alan Pratt in the early 1970s with a small exhibition in one of the standard gauge bogie coaches and the facility of a MK1 coach as a small café providing tea, coffee and biscuits. The carriages were left on a section of one of the sidings in the old goods yard of Betws-Y-Coed station.
Later an actual museum building was added then, with the arrival of a splendid 15 inch gauge Britannia locomotive, the museum building was altered to accommodate the incoming track and a display site and several new showcases and layouts were also added at this time.
Access to the museum can be obtained through the model shop. There are 5 model railways in the museum which are operated by push buttons. Further photos and information can be found at Britannia or The Museum
