Aberystwyth: Vale of Rheidol Railway
Aberystwyth: Vale of Rheidol Railway
Train with locomotive No 9, 'Prince of Wales'. This loco is one of three 2-6-2T specially built at Swindon in 1923 for this 1ft 11.5ins gauge railway. All three of these engines still exist. The railway passed to the GWR at the time of the Grouping, and then in 1948 it passed to British Railways, who later sold it to the preservation company. The line is very scenic, running for just under 12 miles to Devil's Bridge. The journey takes an hour, and refreshments, (including alcoholic), are available at Devil's Bridge.
