Gwili Railway Preservation Society

The GRPS actively supports the Gwili Railway Company to develop, run and maintain steam railway services on a part of the former GWR Aberystwyth to Carmarthen branch line. Our base is at Bronwydd Arms Station just to the north of Carmarthen in beautiful West Wales. The Society raises money to support projects, provides facilities for the volunteers who man the services and provides amenities for our visitors. Society volunteers also ensure that trackwork, buildings, locomotives and rolling stock are maintained.
