The volunteers who have refurbed this part of the station at Borth and collected all the historical pieces are amazing. They have done such a good job and genuinely love to talk to people about the history. It is definitely worth a visit.

A delightful if small local museum of railway memorabilia. An excellent use of the space in the station buildings (now not used for passenger benefit!) and run entirely by volunteers. Well worth a visit even if you are not travelling on the trains.
