Hop aboard this unmissable journey through one of the most stunning parts of Wales in the Brecon Beacons railway! Sit back, relax and enjoy the dramatic scenery of the South Wales landscape as you meander through the valleys of the Brecon to Merthyr railway on this faithfully restored steam locomotive, originally built in 1859!
This vintage train takes you high up into the Brecon Beacons National Park: ambling through the charming village of Pontsticill, along the full length of the Taf Fechan Reservior where you’ll get great views of the surrounding mountains, until climbing to the summit of the original train line at Torpantau. While the outbound journey doesn’t make any stops, you can stop at Pontsticill station on your return journey to enjoy a coffe at the Lakeside cafe – while mum and dad enjoy the spectacular views across the reservoir to the peaks of Pen y Fan, the highest mountain in southern Britain, the kids can blow off some steam in the play area. The main station in Pant has some lovely tea rooms and souvenir shops to commemorate your visit, also hosting workshops that display the work that goes into restoring the steam engines.
