Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway

         
Welshpool Powys Wales
Description : 

Steam railways - a great day (or evening!) out 


Heritage railways are no longer just for train spotters. They're now attractive days out for the whole family - and at attractive prices.


At Llanfair Caereinion station, about 35 minutes from Shrewsbury, of course there are the gleaming locomotives hissing with steam. But there are also comfortable carriages, with covered seating. Or if the weather's fine, stand on the open balconies and watch the rolling hills, rushing rivers, green farmland and grazing sheep and cattle. Wildlife abounds too: spot the deer in Powys Estates, watch for heron at the Banwy Bridge and red kites or buzzards almost anywhere.


The railway offers a choice of experiences. All trains currently start and finish at Llanfair Caereinion. A one-hour trip takes you to Castle Caereinion and back. A two hour trip to Welshpool and back. There is also a choice of First Class and Standard Class carriages and a number of food based Special Trains too. At the Llanfair Caereinion terminal you will find our friendly staff, a gift shop, toilets, large car parks, food and drink and covered seating.


Where do the evenings come in? The railway operates several evening fish and chips specials each season - they leave Llanfair Caereinion at 6:00 pm and travel down to Welshpool where a choice of meals is served to eat on the return journey. There's nothing like eating on a train as the scenery goes by. But these evenings often sell out, so advance booking (and selection of meals) is essential, on www.wllr.org.uk


And the price is right – one hour adult fares start at £12.


Once you've sampled the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway, you'll also want to try the other members of the Great Little Trains of Wales - they're a little further from Shropshire but they're all different and well worth the trip. Full information on all of them (and how to get there by rail if you prefer), is on www.bigtrainlittletrain.com
