Brecon Mountain Railway



If you want a fantastic day out for all the family, you should visit the Brecon Mountain Railway.

Take a leisurely steam ride along some of the most beautiful scenery which Merthyr has to offer, and enjoy a coffee or a meal in our tearoom.  A lot of our produce is locally sourced and we welcome group bookings

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 Dol-y-Gaer 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.

Please note that we have room for up to four wheelchairs per train, please telephone in advance to book this space if needed.
