Garw Valley Railway

The Garw Valley Railway is based on the former Pontycymer to Tondu branch to the north of Bridgend which was curtailed to Pontycymer after 1997. Most of the track remains “in situ”, with two short lengths having been lifted. The line is single track, with potential station sites at Pontycymer, Pontyrhyl, Llangeinor and Brynmenyn. The closest national rail station is Tondu on the Maesteg Branch. Pontycymer is a 15 minute drive from the M4 at junction 36.

The Company hopes to restore passenger train services between Pontycymer and Tondu within the next 10 years and possibly into Brynmenyn Industrial Estate where a National Railway Centre could be developed.

The Bridgend Valleys Railway Company Ltd. trading as Garw Valley Railway’s objective is to advance public education by the restoration, preservation and display of railway locomotives, carriages, wagons and other artefacts of historical interest and buildings connected therewith, in particular but not exclusively those connected with the Garw Valley. And the preservation of books drawings, records, documents, visual and sound recordings, cinematography films and photographs relating to such artefacts and vehicles, their history and development.
