The Vale of Rheidol Railway will not be reopening this summer.
This difficult decision has been made in order to protect our visitors, our staff, and those who live locally. We thank all our supporters and look forward to seeing you in 2021.
Please keep an eye on our website and social media for news and updates.
STEP BACK IN TIME…
The Vale of Rheidol Railway re-creates the Edwardian spirit of adventure. Step aboard one of our restored steam trains for a stunning journey along the Rheidol Valley.
Since opening in 1902, millions have enjoyed the scenic trip through the ancient woodlands to Devil’s Bridge, home of the famous waterfalls, nestled in the magnificent Cambrian Mountains.
FEEL THE WIND IN YOUR HAIR…
See the countryside change as you travel through wide open fields and meadows, woodland and rugged mountain scenery. The narrow track gauge allows the railway to follow the contours of the terrain with many sharp curves and steep gradients which add to the railway’s charm.
Listen to the sound of a powerful narrow gauge steam locomotive working hard to climb 700ft (200m) during the 12 miles from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge.
Birds of prey such as Red Kite and Buzzards are regularly seen soaring high above the valley floor and breath taking views can be enjoyed by all.
