The Gwili Railway has the potential to be the number one tourist attraction in Carmarthenshire. The vision for the future is to provide entertainment for its customers combining this with a ride on a heritage steam train through beautiful Welsh countryside.
Currently, the railway is working towards creating a new station complex in Carmarthen called Abergwili Junction which will be located alongside the roundabout at the northern end of the A40 Carmarthen by-pass.
The intention is to build a state of the art visitors' centre. The visitors' centre will include facilities that will be an asset to the community and will provide covered areas for children to play and for museum displays. Other all year round facilities such as a Coffee Shop/Cafe will also be built. Access to the railway will be from the Carmarthen bypass; a new large car park will accommodate many cars and several coaches.
The plan is to develop the facilities that the railway can offer. Car parking is to be improved together with better catering facilities at Bronwydd Arms Station and Llwyfan Cerrig Station. Interesting visitor attractions for both adults and children are to be introduced to Llwyfan Cerrig Station adding to what is already provided.
Ultimately, our aim is to extend the railway north along the beautiful valley of the Afon Gwili towards Conwil where the roads are left behind. From this point the river and the railway share the valley with creatures of the wild and farm animals as eventually Llanpumpsaint is reached.
