The TVLR is a registered charity which aims to preserve as much as possible of the former Tanat Valley Light Railway system and its associated railway networks.
The actual Nantmawr branch is on a rising gradient all the way to Nantmawr, starting from Llanddu it passes under the A495 road bridge and then across whitegates crossing. The branch then curves gently to the left, crosses a small stream and finally enters the Nant mawr quarry complex.
The Nantmawr Visitor Centre aims to provide an inexpensive day out for families, tourists and local visitors, it includes a railway restoration project with approximately 15 acres of adjoining land being developed as a visitor centre including woodland walks, railway rides, nature trail, picnic areas, museum, outdoor stage, land art project and reputedly the highest lime kilns in the UK. Children, family and disabled friendly. The project is considered to be of special environmental and historical interest.
The Nantmawr site is open to the public when trains are running. Tea and coffee will be available.
We will be operating services over the line between Cefn Lane and Nantmawr using our 1960’s diesel railcar.
Pay once and you can travel all day.
