Pontypool & Blaenavon Railway

The railway is set in the heart of a World Heritage Site on the edge of the Brecon Beacons. At over 1,300ft above sea level the Whistle Inn Halt is the highest station in England and Wales. The line has extremely steep gradients up to 1 in 29 which requires the industrial locomotives used to work very hard. Blaenavon's Heritage Railway is set in the heart of a World Heritage Site on the edge of the Brecon Beacons. There is ample free car and coach parking at Furnace Sidings, our main station. From here, our trains head north to the Whistle Inn and south to Blaenavon, which is only a short walk from the town centre. They also serve the Big Pit Mining Museum. Whether you’re looking for a family day out or are a devoted railway enthusiast, we have something for you. Trains leave Furnace Sidings every half hour with a round trip taking about an hour, and you only pay once to ride all day!.
