Welcome to The Brecon Mountain Railway.

The line runs from Pant, 3 miles North of Merthyr Tydfil, to Torpantau following part of the route of the original Brecon & Merthyr Railway which closed in 1964.

Travel from our Main Station at Pant in one of our all-weather Observation Carriages, behind a vintage Steam Locomotive.

The journey takes you into the Brecon Beacons National Park, through Pontsticill and  along the full length of the Taf Fechan Reservior before climbing to Torpantau high in the Brecon Beacons and the summit of the original line.

At our main station in Pant you can visit our Licensed Tearooms  for refreshments, gifts and souvenirs are available from our Shop. You can also visit our Workshop where the Steam Locomotives and Carriages are repaired.

All trains travel non stop from Pant to Torpantau. All returning trains from Torpantau stop at our intermediate station in Pontsticill where you can visit our Lakeside Cafe, see our new Steam Museum, admire the view or go for walks alongside the reservoir, there is also a children’s play area here.

The Brecon Mountain Railway is one of 'The Great Little Trains of Wales'. 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.
