Railway enthusiasts enjoyed the successful Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway annual Steam Gala at the start of the month, now it’s the turn of the youngsters as the popular mid-Wales line stages its Teddy Bears event on the weekend of September 16-17..

The weekend will follow the format that has proved a hit with children visiting the line. They will be encouraged to bring their favourite teddy with them, and every child that arrives with a bear and a paying grown-up will travel for free.

Along the line, meanwhile, there will be teddy bears to spot, while the railway’s own big ted will also be on hand to meet children and their teddies, and to pose for pictures.

“The Teddy Bear weekend is all about the railway’s many family visitors, and a complete change to the successful Steam Gala we held at the start of the month” said Llanfair Line spokesman Andrew Charman. “We are looking forward to seeing many young visitors to the line, with their teddy bears of course.”

Round trips depart from Welshpool station at 11.15am and 2.05pm on both days, and from Llanfair Caereinion at 10am, 1pm and 3.30pm. More details including ticket prices can be found on the railway’s website,, or by calling 01938 810441.
