The 12 mile journey takes about an hour each way and winds its way through magnificent countryside offering spectacular views. The railway opened in 1902 and there are still 3 of the steam engines that worked the line supporting the local mines all those years ago. Take time when you get to the Devil’s Bridge to view the Mynach Falls, Devils Punchbowl and Jacobs ladder. The railway was the last steam railway owned by British Rail until it was privatized in 1989.

Introduction of Wales
With its distinctive culture, rich history and heritage, and stunning natural beauty, Wales is one of the UK's most popular visitor destinations. The mountainous country and its proud Celtic peoples denied even the conquering Roman armies access to their world, and the magnificent Welsh pride is still evident today, although split somewhat between the mountainous north and the rolling hills and former mining villages of the south. North Wales is home to the rugged range of Snowdonia and the popular seaside resort of Llandudno as well as the medieval fortified town of Conwy, with its magnificent castle. Mid Wales holds the ancient fortified town of Tenby, with its elegant beach resort. The South Wales cities of Cardiff and Swansea are soaked in history and backed by the traditional mining and steel towns of the Industrial Revolution, with their violent histories of strikes against the British mine and mill owners. Around the western coastline, close to Swansea, are glorious bays and rolling countryside, and Cardiff is now a cultural city with Wales hotels, a fashionable dockside development and great nightlife, dining and shopping. Other must-sees are Caernarfon Castle, picturesque Bangor and the pretty northern offshore island of Anglesey.
