THE Llanelli & Mynydd Mawr Railway (L&MMR) at Cynheidre, South Wales, held a successful event on Bank Holiday Monday, August 27, with more than 200 passengers carried.
In addition, it hosted a visit by the Branch Line Society in the morning, with 136 of the group’s members enjoying a rare double-headed ride covering all available track.
They arrived at Llanelli on the ‘Marching Crompton’ railtour from Crewe, making the transfer to the L&MMR by road coach, thus becoming the first such large party to visit the new railway.
The railway is closed until December 8-9 when ‘Santa’ specials will be operating.
