WELCOME TO THE WELSHPOOL & LLANFAIR LIGHT RAILWAY

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays in September, we will run 60 minute round trips from Llanfair Caereinion to Castle Caereinion. Times can be found at the bottom of this page. Fares for this journey are £12 for adults, £5 for children and £29 for families of four. These can be booked by selecting the date at the bottom of the page.

From the 9th of September, an excursion train to Welshpool will run at 2pm each Wednesday and Saturday until further notice. These will offer visitors the chance to travel along the full length (16-mile round trip, departing Llanfair Caereinion) of our historic light railway, in period European carriages behind a vintage steam locomotive. Currently, a very limited number of these trains are available so we would advise booking quickly! Tickets for Welshpool trains cost £36 for two adults (as a minimum booking), with additional adults costing £15, children costing £5 or £39 for a family of four. Dogs can travel for £3.50.

Welshpool trains must be booked by calling 01938 810441 between 9am and 4:30pm each day. 

Here are a few tips to make your visit as enjoyable as possible:
