New extension passes scenic waterfall
After 17 years of hard work and at a cost of more than £500,000, Gwili Railway Company is all set to open its much anticipated extension.
From 2nd July visitors to the heritage line in south-west Wales can enjoy nearly two extra miles from Bronwydd Arms, in Carmarthenshire, to Abergwili Junction. The current stretch of track – along the old Carmarthen to Aberystwyth line – is two-and-a-half miles long, and the extension will see it expand to more than four miles.
The new route will pass the beautiful Gwili Falls which those involved in the line's construction hope will attract many visitors.
"We look forward to a new chapter in the history of the railway," says extension director Matt Bowen. "We are proud of all the hard work by our volunteers, staff, members and shareholders in making the project happen. We are also grateful to the assistance and support of both local businesses and those in the railway industry that have contributed."
