With a rich history dating back to 1902 and daily services to London Paddington, Carmarthen railway station is an important link in the West Wales Lines – which cover Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Swansea.

South of the River Towy, one of the longest rivers in Wales and famed for its salmon and trout fishing, Carmarthen railway station has been serving the area for decades, giving locals vital access to the capital and visitors the chance to explore its beautiful countryside.

For rail enthusiasts visiting the Carmarthen Railway Station, there’s also the chance to celebrate the region’s rich heritage with a trip on one of the locomotives of the The Gwili Railway Preservation Society

The society has a collection of ex-industrial steam engines which encapsulate a century of rail transport in South Wales, which are used for events all-year round and for all ages – from murder mystery evenings to the annual Christmas rides to Santa's Grotto at Llwyfan Cerrig Station.
