About The Gwili Steam Railway
The Gwili Steam Railway was formed in 1975 and, by 1978, had purchased and rescued about eight miles of trackbed of the former Carmarthen to Aberystwyth line from British Railways. The section purchased runs from Abergwili Junction in the south, the point at which the GWR Aberystwyth line joined the LNWR line from Llandeilo, to a point just short of Llanpumpsaint Station to the north, initially it was running a steam-hauled service on a one-mile section of it. The Gwili Steam Railway has the distinction of becoming the first standard-gauge preserved railway to operate in South West Wales when it re-opened the one-mile section of the Carmarthen-Llanpumsaint route from its base at Bronwydd Arms, three miles north of Carmarthen. Since then, the railway has expanded to Danycoed and the company continues to hope to expand to Llanpumsaint.
