On the 2nd September, we find ourselves visiting the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway for their annual steam gala for – our first visit to the railway on a gala weekend. The event featured plenty of things to see, including model railways. Also based at Llanfair Caereinion were traction engines and old vehicles. In my view, the ride on this railway is is only for steam locomotive enthusiasts. This is because the two towns Llanfair Caereinion and Welshpool have touristy actually nothing to offer. But if one is interested in the old technology and railway romance, you can enjoy the ride.
