Vale of Rheidol Light Railway
The Green Guide
Park Avenue, SY231PG Aberyswyth
The Vale of Rheidol Valley Light Railway takes tourists from Aberystwyth station to the Mynach waterfalls through the glorious wooded Rheidol Valley. The 19-km trip takes an hour as the train climbs slowly to the terminus at a height of 195 m. The line was built in 1902 to service the valley's lead mines. The original engines and rolling stock are still used.
