New carriage shed construction under way at Aberystwyth

WORK began at the end of October on the foundations for Vale of Rheidol Railway’s (VoR) new carriage shed at Aberystwyth. 

This next phase of the major reconstruction of VoR’s terminus will produce a
400ft-long three-road building. 

Completion of the new carriage shed will be followed by construction of a new ticket office and reinstatement of the footpath linking VoR’s site to the mainline station along the southern side of the new structure.

With this development at the station progressing through the winter VoR will not be running Christmas trains this year.
