Largely created as the Mid Wales Railway, this very scenic route ran alongside the Rivers Wye and Severn for many attractive miles. Here is the opportunity to enjoy the historic stations, most rural and cottage-like, but a few were imposing. The short trains have a variety of engines of diverse ages.
