It is with great sadness the Vale of Rheidol Railway announces the death of the company’s founder and Chairman Mr Peter Rampton.


The railway would like to pass on its condolences to Peter’s Family at this difficult time.


“Peter was the driving force behind our amazing railway.  His passion and drive to see the Vale of Rheidol Railway restored to its former glory will remain testament to a man whose legacy will live on for many years to come.  One of life’s great eccentrics the world is a lesser place without him.  Rest in Peace old friend.”
