The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway was opened in 1903 to link farming communities with the market town of Welshpool. Our line transported people, goods and livestock through the picturesque Banwy Valley for many years before finally being closed in 1956; but that was not the end. In 1963 a band of volunteers rallied round to re-open the line and preserve its heritage for future generations. Enjoy steam trips through beautiful Mid Wales with experiences for everyone including catering and dining journeys with afternoon teas, fish and chips and more!
