Little Trains of Wales are a very special way of seeing some of the best scenery
in the British Isles. All are narrow gauge steam railways and some
have a history spanning well over 100 years. All of them have in
common the charm of old-time steam trains with plenty of polished
paintwork and brass.
Built in a time less
hasty than our own, most originally served to carry Welsh slate
from the quarries to the sea. However, no two are the same and they
all offer a unique experience of a bygone era.The special attraction
of narrow gauge railways lies in their modest size compared with
the main line ones and their leisurely speed gives time to take
in some of the splendid scenery. Why not take a Virtual
Tour of Wales and its narrow gauge railways.
