The Vale of Rheidol Railway is the owner of an extensive collection of historical narrow gauge locomotives and rolling stock as listed below. We plan to build a museum in Aberystwyth to showcase this collection.

 At present the only items in this collection which are on public view are:

 Quarry Hunslet, “Margaret” In regular use at Vale of Rheidol Railway for “Driver for a Fiver”
