The line has been rebuilt to Pontprenshitw...

July 2021

The team have rebuilt the narrow gauge line as far as Pontprenshitw. 

This was in fact the original terminus of the narrow gauge railway, originally opening in 1986 after the trackbed was bought.

Visitors can now take a short walk down underneath the railway bridge, where a gorge and waterfalls can be viewed.

Work now starts on restoring the line past Pontprenshitw, to Llandyfriog.

Sleepers delivered

November 2019

At Henllan we took delivery of 50 grade 1 sleepers which are enough for us to reach Pontprenshitw, to join up with the disused section of the railway. Thanks are due to Robin Berry for his kind donation.

It's beginning to look a lot like...

November 2019

Our volunteers have been recovering the Christmas decorations from storage, ready to put them up in time for the Santa Specials which begin on December 9th.

New Signs and Tickets

Summer 2019

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Jonathan and Liz Mann of Launceston Steam Railway for donating this fabulous sign and Edmonson-style tickets.


The Journey to Pontprenshitw

Work has been progressing tirelessly in a bid to reach Pontprenshitw Station. Sleepers, ballast and rail have been laid which means we are progressing well and it should not be much longer before our trains can carry passengers to this destination as we only have about 130 yards to go.


The Busy Bee Cafe

July 2019

A warm welcome awaits you at our popular Busy Bee Cafe where we now have a beautiful new kitchen with lovely modern units, worktops and splashbacks, the majority of which were fitted by one of our volunteer members, Alan Weavin with assistance from other volunteers.

Friendly staff will be happy to serve you with great coffee and yummy cakes, etc. We look forward to seeing you!

Original Henllan platform uncovered

June 2019

Two of our volunteers, Gail and Terry, were mowing the park area when they uncovered some diamond paving which turned out to be part of the original Great Western Railway 'up' platform.

They continued excavating to reveal the original stonework which will be used as the base for a picnic area.


Sammy's Back

June 2019

We are delighted to say that Sammy, our 1959 Simplex Motor Rail diesel, came back into service on Fathers' Day after an absence of several years. 

It was great to see this lovely engine pulling trains again.
