The Great Little Trains of Wales

The railway is situated just off the A487 between Dolgellau and 5 miles north of Machynlleth and is clearly sign-posted.

Turn off the A487 opposite the Braich Goch Bunkhouse & Inn and the Station Yard is the second turn on the right as you enter the village, just past Holy Trinity Church. Alternatively, visit the Corris Craft Centre and walk down the zig-zag path into the village.

  •   Great little train to visit. Have several different trains including steam. Your ticket allows several trips. This is self funded and ran by volunteers so great to support them. very friendly staff. Why not combine visit with Corris craft centre.
