Friends of the Rhiw Valley Light Railway

Friends of the Rhiw Valley Light Railway has been formed as a vehicle to allow narrow gauge steam enthusiasts the opportunity to help support the long term development of the RVLR and to help with the maintenance and running of this unique “minimum gauge” steam railway.

We have ambitious plans to expand the railway and your support both financial and practical is crucial to these plans being fulfilled.

We currently have a small core of dedicated volunteers and would very much like to expand the size of that volunteer workforce.

Volunteers have the opportunity to help with the maintenance and expansion of the permanent way, the maintenance of the rolling stock and to train as guards and even drivers.

Help us to maintain the heritage and the “dream” of our founder, Jack Woodroffe, and join Friends of the Rhiw Valley Light Railway.
