Welsh Highland Heritage Railway. Redirected from Welsh Highland Railway (Porthmadog)). The Welsh Highland Heritage Railway is a short reconstructed heritage railway in Gwynedd, Wales. Its main station is in Porthmadog. The origins of the WHHR lie in a small group of railway enthusiasts, including some disgruntled volunteers from the Festiniog Railway, forming the Welsh Highland Railway Society in 1961, to preserve and rebuild the original WHR which had operated from 1922 to 1936.

The original Welsh Highland Railway has been reconstructed by the Festiniog Railway Company and the Welsh Highland Railway Limited. Both companies will have running rights over the WHR main line from to and the WHHR branch from to the existing WHR Ltd. station in Porthmadog. The precise terms of these running rights, however, is not yet settled. Welsh Highland Railway Ltd. 1961–2008. Book: Hopkins, John . .Book: Johnson, Peter. Portrait of the Welsh Highland Railway.
