Our Reopening Measures

We have a wide range of measures in place to ensure that visitors feel comfortable when they return to our beautiful Mid Wales railway.

These include social distancing of seats on-board our trains which now have a capacity well below half of in normal times, providing not just a distanced experience but also a more relaxed one. Because of this, we advise that you book spaces on-board as soon as you can and, where possible, before the day of travel. The railway is operated by a charity and we would be grateful when you visit if you can help us through purchasing a guidebook or making a donation to help in our conservation and education work.

Other steps have included temporarily closing our traditional tea room, in which place we have facilities providing hot and cold drinks, hot and cold food and ice-creams for summer days. You’ll find a number of hand sanitising points around the railway and one way systems, too.

We are asking all visitors aged 12 and over to wear face coverings for the length of your visit, including once on-board our trains (unless eating or drinking). This simple step helps you, us and our other visitors.

Having undertaken this work, we were eligible for the Visit Wales / Visit England Good to Go scheme, set up to recognise businesses and organisations in tourism which have worked hard to ensure that they have plenty of measures in place for reopening. We hope that this increases the confidence of visitors further.
