Thanks for the compliments, Howard.
Your assumption is right - there are the equivalent of about five paid staff behind the scenes for continuity and special expertise, but almost all the people you meet will be among the 260 volunteers without whose passion and commitment...More
Very friendly staff. An historic line with original engines. The carriages are a mixture from various places, I recommend sitting in a carriage from Zillertal Bahn from Austria. The railway is disabled friendly with toilets at both ends and an excellent tearoom at Llanfair. Journey...More
I don't what it is about Welsh Narrow Gauge railways but I've lost count of the number of times I've visited stations to find the last train has gone.
This time I took no chances and we left home early to stop at Welshpool en-route...More
Visited and took a trip on the train fory birthday. Sadly the steam engine couldn't be used due to the hot weather and the increased risk of a fire being caused. This however did not ruin the trip. The journey was so pleasant I smiled...More

Hi, thanks for asking. Yes, dogs are welcome, but like other passengers they need a ticket at £3, single or return. They are not allowed in the eating area of the tearoom, unfortunately, except for registered assistance... More
Hi, thanks for asking. Yes, dogs are welcome, but like other passengers they need a ticket at £3, single or return. They are not allowed in the eating area of the tearoom, unfortunately, except for registered assistance dogs (who also don't need a ticket). Doggy bowls provided outside to keep their thirst at bay!
We do allow dogs to travel for a small fee (£3.00, or £2.50 if booked in advance via our website). We regret that dogs are unable to go in the seated area in the tearoom at present, but on most days there is a carriage... More
We do allow dogs to travel for a small fee (£3.00, or £2.50 if booked in advance via our website). We regret that dogs are unable to go in the seated area in the tearoom at present, but on most days there is a carriage parked in the station as an overflow area where dogs are welcome - heated during colder months. Plenty of outdoor seating for nicer days too.
Thank you for contacting us.
