Take a step back in time at the Gwili Steam Railway, a delightful preserved railway just outside Carmarthen in West Wales. Running steam train services every day of local school holidays and selected days throughout the remainder of the year, this is the perfect trip for all ages to enjoy. Experience a typical country branch line from the 1950s with a stop off at Llwyfan Cerrig Station in a beautiful spot alongside the River Gwili.

Hi there Thanks for the query. As far as we are concerned there is no problem with bringing a little dog. Their fare is £1.50 which you can pay on the day. The only thing is that the Santa trains are usually very busy and... More
