Brecon Mountain Railway

Travel in one of our all-weather observation coaches behind a vintage steam locomotive through beautiful scenery into the Brecon Beacons National Park along the full length of the Taf Fechan Reservoir to Dol-y-Gaer on one of the most popular Railways in Wales.

We have a new childrens play area at Pontsticill which is proving very popular with our young visitors.

This is a very good spot to relax and enjoy the view across the Reservoir, whilst the children play safely. There are picnic tables here also.

Pant Station

On your return to Pant, visit our workshops where old steam locomotives are restored and new ones built - follow the footpath to a picnic site which has an amazing panoramic view of the valley.

Visit our licensed tea rooms and buy a souvenir of your visit in our shop.
