The Railway opened in 1902, serving the lead mines, timber and passenger traffic of the Rheidol Valley. In deference to the hostile terrian the railway was built to a narrower track gauge than the norm.

It is now owned by a chairtable trust. During the last 19 yearsa a complete renovation programme has been under way which has involved re building steam locomotives and carriages, renewing the track and opening up view not seen for decades. Further improvements are continuing.

Trains normally wait at Devil's Bridge before returning to Aberystwyth.
