steam rallies and events

Events in Wales

Wales was once home to a huge range of industrial activities – coal mining, iron working, slate quarries and the products were moved by railway or canal. It's all here – scenic narrow gauge railways, including the newly-opened Welsh Highland Railway, the National Slate Museum, Big Pit Mining Museum, Blaenavon Ironworks plus lots more. The scenery is great too!

The Steam Heritage Guide includes contact details, opening times and description of preservation and heritage attractions across Wales.
