23. Day Five in Llwyngwril: A Beer, a Steam Train, a Sunset
I knew there were a few historic narrow-gauge steam train rides in this part of Wales, and I didn’t get to do any of them my last trip here. I determined to make up for it, and this little train started in Tywyn, just a couple of train stops from my cottage! I visited the station a couple of days prior, just to get a feel for it (and had a delicious lunch); so I bought an advance ticket that day and hopped in the late morning.
This little train boasts of being the first preserved railway line in the world, resurrected and restored in the 1950’s. It is almost entirely run by volunteers, and travels through a beautiful valley and past a couple of waterfalls.
Today was a fun, touristy day! Low stakes, high fun. And a quiet evening at home, planning my adventure for the next day, a trip to Machynlleth.
