The Vale of Rheidol Railway is justly considered one of the Great Little Trains of Wales, with the railway line running between Aberystwyth on the Cambrian coast and Devils Bridge.

A ride on the Vale of Rheidol Railway is the greatest way to explore the stunningly scenic Rheidol Valley. The Vale of Rheidol Railway opened in 1902 is a masterpiece of engineering, and designed to carry lead ore, timber and passenger traffic.

The narrow track gauge lets the railway follow the contours of the terrain with lots of sharp curves and steep gradients making the steam locomotives work really and the ensuing sights and sounds add to the railway's charm.
 

24. Ex GWR narrow gauge (1' 111/2") 2-6-2T tank engine 7  (pictured in April 1966 or 1967?) was built for the Vale of Rheidol Railway at Swindon Works in 1923. I've no idea where the photograph was taken? Just cam across it by chance while out walking somewhere in Wales!
