Over 260 visitors enjoyed Brake Van rides behind resident Sentinel Diesel No. 10222 on our short demonstration line before visiting the great man himself in his grotto, with all children receiving a small gift. Seasonal refreshments were also on offer including Mince Pies and Mulled wine for the adults. One visitor commented ‘We had a great afternoon, and you actually had THE REAL SANTA! Great’. All proceeds from the event will be used to further develop the railway which is run completely by volunteers.

The Llanelli & Mynydd Mawr Railway is now closed until Saturday 30th March 2019, when we open for the first of our monthly running days through the Spring and summer seasons. Full details will be available soon on the following web link The railway is hoping to grow into a major tourist attraction for the Llanelli district and in order to reach our goals we need more volunteer help in all departments including operational, maintenance and restoration, and administration. If you could spare a few hours for what is a most enjoyable pastime and worthwhile cause do not hesitate to get in touch.
