It was a lovely visit to the Gwili Steam Railway full of nostalgia and excellent tea and cake. The line runs from Bronwydd just north of Carmarthen and follows the old Carmarthen to Aberystwyth line.
The volunteers obviously are enjoying themselves just as much as the visitors, which kind of rubs off on you and enhances the experience. If you visit on a Thursday or Friday you can also enjoy a cream tea onboard It is very easy to pre-book online and I have done a bit of quality control on the cake. It was very good!
For our visitors from 94, you can take your dog. There were at least two, I saw on the day I visited and they appeared to be very happy and taking steam travel in their stride.
It is worth checking their website as there are special events on throughout the year. If you want to be more spontaneous you can just turn up and buy your ticket on the day at the ticket office. There are some 2 for 1 vouchers in each cottage.
