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.

Great Little Trains of Wales Ed Pick
The Great 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.

Gwili Railway
Carmarthen, Dyfed, Wales - The Gwili Steam Railway operates a standard gauge preserved railway from Bronwydd (near Carmarthen) in South Wales along a short section of the former Carmarthen to Aberystwyth railway that closed for passenger traffic in 1965, the track being lifted in 1975.

The Gwili Railway was formed in 1975 and, by 1978, had purchased and rescued about eight miles of trackbed and was running an initial steam-hauled service on a one-mile section of it. The Gwili 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.

Currently, the railway is working south towards Carmarthen to a new station called Carmarthen North built at the old Abergwili junction. The locomotive stock of the Gwili Railway is unusual in that it mostly represents local industrial and wartime operations rather than mainline services.

Hampshire Narrow Gauge Railway Society
Swanwick, Southampton - The Hampshire Narrow Gauge Railway Society was founded some fifty years ago with the aim of saving a Bagnall saddle tank locomotive from the scrap yard and establishing a narrow gauge railway in Hampshire, and which later evolved into an equipment operating group. In October 2006 it was incorporated into the Hampshire Narrow Gauge Railway Trust, an important milestone which has proved a most beneficial development. With its base for operations at the Brickworks Industrial Museum in Hampshire in the south of England, the Trust conserves and operates narrow gauge equipment dating back to the end of the nineteenth century.

At Bursledon Brickworks Industrial Museum, efforts are focused on the once widespread narrow gauge railway in industry. Here the Trust's steam and petrol locomotives and many other varieties of rolling stock are kept, and see regular use both for work on the re-creation of a narrow gauge railway, for demonstrations of industrial trains to visitors and for operating passenger trains.

The Trust's Hunslet steam locomotive ‘Cloister’ has recently been moved from Amberley Working Museum & Heritage Centre , and is currently undergoing a refit in the workshops at Holton Heath Dorset.
