See Mid Wales from the steam railway
Mid Wales is rolling hills, rushing rivers, green farmland and grazing sheep and cattle. You can see them all from the carriage windows of the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway, or even better from the open balconies.
A 45-minute ride on the eight-mile long steam railway takes you over steep hills and along the Banwy River. At the Llanfair Caereinion terminus admire the gleaming engines, have lunch or tea with cakes in the friendly tearoom, turn the children loose in the play and picnic area, or set off to explore town and countryside before your return journey.
Trains run almost every day all summer and early autumn, with special events to make a return visit very worthwhile. See full details on the railway’s website at www.wllr.org.uk, and book discount tickets on-line. A family ticket is also available – great value to go with the great scenery.
