Summer reopening 2020

Due to COVID our railways are now starting to open for the summer season. Visit Wales is asking all tourists to ‘Make your promise to Wales’ and Visit Wales Safely. Not all railways are open, please check details and restricitons.

With travel in Wales beginning, holiday accommodation reopening and camping to start soon, the Great Little Trains of Wales (GLToW) are welcoming visitors.
GLToW are regulated by the Office of Road and Rail (ORR) which ensures railway companies protect passengers from any health and safety risks.

GLToW railways have made several modifications to the way they operate so that we can keep you, our staff, and volunteers safe.
