The Vale of Rheidol Railway

The Vale of Rheidol Railway

Opened in 1902, the Vale of Rheidol Railway is a masterpiece of engineering and has been delighting passengers young and old for generations. Although the line no longer carries lead ore from the mines it has been carrying tourists to the beauty spot of Devil’s Bridge for over a hundred years.

See the countryside change as you travel through wide open fields, ancient woodland and rugged mountain scenery, as the line twists and turns, clinging to the hillside to reach Devil’s Bridge – home of the famous Mynach Falls and Devil’s Punch Bowl.

Look out for birds of prey such as Red Kites and Buzzards soaring high above the valley floor and listen to the sound of the narrow gauge steam engine working hard on the climb into the hills.

Regular services Easter – October
