The Vale of Rheidol Railway travels along the beautiful Rheidol Valley from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge. You can travel in open carriages during the summer months, right through to luxurious first class observation saloons in operation all year round.
Cwmorthin is a short trek away from the station at Tanygrisiau, but well worth a visit. There are several places to park at Tanygrisiau; there is a large car park as you drive towards the station, a small station car park, one by the popular Café and one at the quarry entrance. What’s more, they are all free. Tanygrisiau is also a station on the Ffestiniog Railway, near Blaenau Ffestiniog.
