Barry Island Railway is a heritage railway line based at the South Wales seaside resort of Barry Island. Situated some 10 miles to the west of Cardiff, the line runs for two miles on two individual branches, one to the low level Waterfront station and one to Woodham Halt on the higher level. An interesting feature is the parallel running with trains on the main railway network.
Barry Island�s all weather attraction for families, school groups and rail enthusiasts. Return to the �Age of Steam�, visit the historic station buildings and view the exhibits. On �Steam Days� travel behind a full sized locomotive and view carriages and wagons being restored in the purpose built workshop. The Railyway also runs special 'Footplate Experiences' offering a day to remember with the thrill of learning to drive a steam or diesel locomotive.
