The Welshpool and Llanfair
Light Railway welcomes visitors of all abilities.
Being a historic narrow gauge
railway somewhat restricts on train facilities, however MOST of
our trains have a vehicle that has been adapted to carry a
maximum of four non-motorised wheelchairs (24” / 600mm or
less). Ramps are
provided at Welshpool Raven Square and Llanfair Caereinion
stations to gain access to these vehicles from the station
As space is limited it is
essential to telephone the railway (01938 810441) in advance of
We regret that our Pickering
Carriages (used on Vintage Trains and some other services) and
our former Sierra Leone Railway Carriages (used on The African
Train and some other services) are not
suitable for carrying wheelchairs.

some shelves and counters may not be accessible for a wheelchair

(and baby changing facilities) are available at both stations.
All toilets have level access.
Car parks are located adjacent
to the stations, a short distance from the booking offices.
Priority parking is available at Welshpool on your left
