About Brecon Mountain Railway
One of the most popular railways in Wales, the line runs from Pant (3 miles North of Merthyr Tydfil) to Torpantau; following part of the route of the original Brecon & Merthyr Railway which closed in 1964.
At Pontsticill you can alight from the train and visit the Cafe, admire the view across the water to the peaks of the Brecon Beacons, and go for a ramble alongside the reservoir. There is a play area here for children.
On your return to Pant, visit our workshop where old steam locomotives are repaired - follow the footpath to a picnic site which has an amazing panoramic view of the valley. Visit our Licensed Tearooms and buy a souvenir of your visit in our shop.
