Return of the Night Rheidol
The Vale of Rheidol is pleased to announce the return of evening excursion trains this Summer. First introduced in 1973 by British Rail and known as the Night Rheidol, evening excursion trains returned to the railway’s timetable for the 2013 Summer season, and are making a return in 2014. This is an exciting continuing development for the Vale of Rheidol as its timetable continues to expands. It is one of the only railways in Wales to offer evening trains with food available, providing great fun for the whole family.
The evening excursion trains, running on certain Wednesdays and Saturdays in July and August depart Aberystwyth at 18:30, giving passengers the opportunity to see the breathtaking views of the Rheidol Valley in an entirely new light. The 18:30 departure from Aberystwyth also provides a late afternoon return journey from Devil’s Bridge, departing at 17:15. The return journey in the Mid-Wales twilight ensures the scenery is forever changing, throughout both outbound and return journeys. Passengers are invited to bring their own picnic or book a delicious chip shop style supper, to be served during the wait at Devil’s Bridge, with Fish and Chips, Curry and Chips and Sausage and Chips all available.
