Details

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 Torpantau, high in the Brecon Beacons - on one of the most popular railways in Wales.

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.

Train Times: 14 - 17 April, 29 April - 1 May, 27 May - 4 June & 1 July - 3 Sept departures from Pant at 10:30, 12:15, 14:00 & 15:45. On all other normal running days, departures are at 10:30, 12:30 & 14:30.
