About Rhiw Valley Light Railway
The Rhiw Valley Light Railway is located south-west of Welshpool between the villages of Berriew and Manafon. It was built to a 15” gauge in 1970 by the late Jack Woodroffe and runs for approximately 0.75 mile round Lower House Farm alongside the river. Rhiw Valley is run on a strictly “not for profit” basis with all donations and entrance fees being spent on developing and maintaining the railways infrastructure and rolling stock. It currently has three engines - a steam tank engine, a steam tender engine and a diesel shunter.
The Railway is not open to the public on a daily basis but does have for Open Days from May until October. Trains run from noon until 4.30pm and visitors are welcome to picnic in the garden or grounds.
