Explore the Welsh countryside with Gwili Railway

Gwili Railway is one of the UK’s most picturesque preserved lines. Set in beautiful countryside with abundant wildlife, the line follows the River Gwili on a steady uphill journey through farmland and wooded hillsides.

Beyond the locomotives, history and scenery, the railway’s appeal lies in the friendliness and enthusiasm of the volunteers who maintain the railway and operate the services. They’re justly proud of the part they play in recreating the golden age of steam and their love of the railway is infectious -they’ll be happy to regale you with information and stories about Gwili and its historic locomotives.

What Our Visitors Say About Our Enchanting Train Rides

A great trip in comfortable, heritage style

The weather was perfect for our trip on the Gwili Railway - Moorbarrow hauled the three coach train with ease; it was great to see volunteers working on the restoration of many items of rolling stock. Highly recommended.

Great day out, everyone is lovely!

Lovely staff, reasonable price for what you get, lots of shunting because you go both ways on the line our steam-train-loving toddler loved it!

Well worth a visit

Smashing little railway with plans for expansion. Warm welcome, interesting tank engines and lovely wooded railway line. Well worth a visit.
