The railway is a registered charity and is located at the site of the former Cynheidre Colliery, SA15 5DQ, just five miles from Llanelli on the B4309 Llanelli to Carmarthen Road.
The railway is a charity run totally by volunteers. It 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.
